The FIFA team comprises of Sarai Bareman, Nichole Fisch, Venessa Marques and former Super Eagles player Osaze Peter Odemwingie. According to them, the Nigeria leg of the Women’s World Cup Trophy Tour is very much needed because the FIFA Women’s World Cup is more appreciated in Nigeria than in any other African country.
