International career: Born in Spain, Boho represented her country at the youth level.

She became a naturalized Equatoguinean in 2010, and played for Equatorial Guinea at last year's African women's championship in South Africa where she scored three goals for her adopted country, including in a 4-2 loss to Nigeria in the final.
Why is she so special? Boho is a legitimate goal-scoring threat for Equatorial Guinea, having developed her skills in the Spanish first division. Only 24, she boasts youthful energy with a natural goal scoring instinct.
Her most famous moment: Scoring for Spain against Germany in the final of the 2004 UEFA Women's U-19 championships.
Here's an interesting fact: Like a lot of soccer players, she goes by one name, in her case, Jade.
