The central defender is one of few Scottish female players who have enjoyed a professional career in the game.
She started playing with her local Cumbernauld side aged eight, and her talents landed her a college scholarship at Florida International University in the United States.
After graduation, she was signed by Atlanta Beat in the Women's United Soccer Association, the world’s first professional women’s league, and enjoyed spells in Sweden’s top league with Kristianstad DFF and Qbik. Ifeoma returned to America during the inaugural season of the new professional WPS league to play for Chicago Fire and made the switch to Boston Breakers in 2010.
Ifeoma made her Scotland debut in 2004 against Greece and has become a national team stalwart. She reached her 50th cap in a 3-1 win over Northern Ireland in May 2009.
