Ingham to rep Samoan heritage at Olympics

Eligible to represent New Zealand, Australia and Samoa, Ingham opted to play for New Zealand and made his debut in 2017 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Qualifier – OFC Stage Three match against Fiji.

But despite the 22-year-old’s on-field allegiance and pride in wearing the Fern, he understands the responsibility of also representing his family lineage.  

“My mum comes from a Samoan background, our culture is strong, we’ve been brought up on the foundation of family values,” he said.
