Ini Umotong has become the first Portsmouth player to feature in a full international after making her debut for Nigeria in their All-Africa Games qualifier in Mali.
The 20-year-old striker was a second-half substitute for the Super Falcons in their 1-1 draw with their west African neighbours in the first leg of the qualifying tie.
Nigeria had been leading through a goal by Ngozi Okobi, but Mali equalised near the end after a defensive mix-up, leaving the tie in the balance ahead of the second leg in Abuja on April 5.
The Portsmouth striker, who has scored 21 goals in all competitions this season, made her historic appearance on 57 minutes.
It’s not yet clear when Umotong, who studies at the University of Southampton, will be returning to England.
Portsmouth are at home to Plymouth Argyle this Sunday and are due to visit Charlton Athletic the following Sunday – the day of the return leg against Mali.
Pompey are also due to play Southampton Saints in the Hampshire Cup final the following Wednesday.
