Ajax Amsterdam women’s team’s new recruit Toni Payne has reiterated her wish to represent Nigeria at the senior level.

Payne, who had played for the Under 17 and Olympic team of the United States, is eligible to play for the Super Falcons as she is born to Nigerian parents from Oyo state and have not played for USA at the senior level.

Payne was formerly at North Carolina University before making the move to Ajax to sign a two-year deal. She scored a total of 23 goals and assisted 21 goals in 86 starts.

“Yes, I am still open to play for Nigeria. I will honour an invitation to play for the Super Falcons,” Payne told Score Nigeria.

“I also believe that by the time I start scoring goals for Ajax, I will get a better chance to be called up.”
