Just like it’s a dream for most football players to represent their countries at different levels, it’s not different from US based right back Unegbu born on 24th October 2005.

 

” As a player, my dream is to represent Uganda because I have roots there. My mum is Ugandan and togather with my dad hold Ugandan passports. I started the career there playing for KISU age of five. I managed to win a trophy with the U-9 side.”
