Payne returned to Sevilla and was swiftly thrust into action on the pitch.

The 27-year-old Payne was in action for Sevilla Femenino in a pre-season fixture against Fundación Albacete Femenino.

Payne was in action as Sevilla came from behind to beat Fundación Albacete 3-1 in the friendly fixture.

The Super Falcons star is expected to return to action on Friday, August 12 against Aston Villa at the Marbella Football Center.

Plumptre on the other hand returned to Leicester City for their first Belvoir Drive Summer Camp.

Speaking at the event, Plumptre who is the Super Falcons Minister of Defense was delighted to see boys and girls at the camp.

She said, “They had some really good questions considering that they are so young! You can tell that they have been thinking about it.

To see this many girls on a summer camp is great and a few boys joining in as well.

The boys all knew about women’s football, which, a couple of years ago I don’t know if that would have been the case, so it’s really good.”
