Early life[edit]

The first of five children, she was brought up in a middle class environment. She attended the Egbu Girls Secondary School Owerri before heading to Delta State University. While in Secondary School, Uche began playing soccer. She later played for the National team Super Falcons, and became their first female coach. In 2010, she became the first woman coach to win an African Women's Championship title.[3] She was sacked in October 2011 after Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics.[4]


Uche was cautioned by FIFA for remarks she made during the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup, in which she called homosexuality a "dirty issue" and "spiritually wrong".[5][6]
