Waipo pursues football path

She is one of the 25 players vying for a spot in the final 21 of the Papua New Guinea U-20 women’s team for the upcoming FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup next month in Port Moresby.

As one of the first Angoram women to make it this far in representative football, Waipo hopes to continue at the senior level in the coming years.

“I am very excited about my football dream and I am working very hard to achieve it,” she said.
