The USA’s Super Falcon

Tina Ellertson did an interview with today and the main topic was her Nigerian heritage. The daughter of a Ghanaian father and Nigerian mother, both of whom immigrated to the USA to attend college, Ellertson (maiden name: Frimpong) is a combination of Africa’s two best women’s soccer nations. Should she get to play against Nigeria (nickname: The Super Falcons) in the USA’s third Group B match, it will be a very special game for her, as her mother Eka made sure she was exposed to Nigerian customs, culture and food when she was growing up.
