The pictures garnered several reactions from Nigerian football fans, who got the impression that she might have opted to play for Spain at the international level, instead of the Nigerian women’s national team.

The football star quickly addressed the speculations, clarifying that she only modeled for Adidas and still belongs to the Nigerian team.

Since her 2021 debut, Zogg has not appeared with the Super Falcons, partly due to injuries she suffered in 2022. Super Falcons head coach Randy Waldrun had expressed optimism about bringing her on board in 2021, stating that she was someone they were eager to invest time in.

The beautiful Zogg has had quite an extensive career, playing for for Zurich, ASJ Soyaux, Turbine Potsdam and now Servette FCCF between 2019 and now.
