    Ighalo this, Iheanacho that; it is time to set our men aside and focus on our esteemed Super Falcons who are preparing for women’s AFCON this.

    Allow me to be the first on this forum to wish our girls a victorious tournament.

    Whilst our girls are number one on the continent, they have such a long, long way to go in international scene.

    Can someone correct me but I think 1999 was the first and last time they reached the Knock out phase at the senior world cup.

    It still hurts me a little!

    After coming from 3:0 down, they would crash out 4:3 to Brazil with 104 minutes goal from Sisi.

    _ The class of 2018 _

    Find below the players who excite me in this current crop of Falcons:

    Esther Sunday: she reminds me so much of Ahmed Musa with her pace. But Esther can be too selfish and holds on to ball longer than necessary.

    Oparanozie: oh I love this lady. A powerful center forward who always reminds me of Karim Benzema.

    Francisca Ordega: The Ronaldo of Nigeria women football before the emergence Oshoala’s emergence overshadowed her.

    Asisat Oshoala: Undoubtedly the number one star of Nigeria (and dear I say, African) women’s football. Lacerating runs, deft touches, delicate deliveries and deadly finishes; this girl is too much!

    She is also a celebrity in her own rights.

    Rasheedat Ajibade : A star of under-aged women’s football and Wafu tournament. All eyes are on Rasheedat as we are well aware of her huge potentials.

    The likes of Ordega have been around for a while, the batton is slowly passing to the likes of Rasheedat.

    To all members of the Super Falcons, we love you all…..

  • wen is de afcon startin?

  • Dear Bro Oluwa,

    The 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations, officially known as the Total Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations, Ghana 2018, will be the 11th edition of the Africa Women Cup of Nations (13th edition if tournaments without hosts are included). The tournament will be held in Ghana,from 17 November to 1 December 2018.

    The tournament also doubles as the African qualifiers to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The top three teams will qualify for the World Cup in France.

    I predict Nigeria, Cameroon and South Africa (or Ghana) will come 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively.

  • ok thank u Deo,

  • i am sure that nigeria, ghana and south africa will go through
