Midfielder Carmel Úhila

Pride for Tonga strong

‘’I feel really proud to wear the Tongan jersey, it also comes with a lot of pride to represent Tonga.’’

Úhila, who is living in Auckland and attending St. Cuthbert’s College, just turned out for Tonga at the OFC U-19 Women’s Championship and next month will make her second appearance for the Tonga U-16 national team at the OFC U-16 Championship in Samoa.

The 15-year-old made her international debut at last year’s OFC U-17 Women’s Championship in the Cook Islands and said the excitement of playing for Tonga still hasn’t worn off.
