With the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup 2022™ kicking off in just over two weeks, we put the spotlight on your CommBank Young Matildas squad in a series of quick ‘getting to know you,’ Q&As.
The first player off the rank is Melbourne City’s Naomi Chinnama.
Q1: Tell us about your journey, how did you get involved in football?
A: One word. “Family.” My junior club was the U7 Point Cook boys’ team in Melbourne, where my dad was actually the coach. I played and trained with my brothers, they were the attackers and I would always try and defend them. They have a few shin scars from me.
I currently play for the Blacktown Spartans in the NSW NPLW during my off-season, on loan from Melbourne City.
