The 22-year-old joined SL Benfica Feminino in February 2020 from Assi, a club based in Sweden, in a three-and-a-half-year deal.

Ucheibe has experienced tremendous success with the Portuguese giants, securing an impressive collection of silverware.

Since her arrival in 2020, Ucheibe has played a pivotal role in guiding SL Benfica Feminino to three consecutive league titles and three Portuguese Cup victories.

Additionally, earlier this year, Ucheibe contributed to the team's success in the Super Cup.
Ucheibe's journey to success has been marked by dedication and perseverance.

Before her move abroad, she showcased her skills playing for Nasarawa Amazons during the 2018 season.

Her exceptional performances at the club level earned her a call-up to the Super Falcons, making her national team debut last year.

Ucheibe's impressive footballing resume also includes representing Nigeria in prestigious international competitions. She participated in the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup and the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
