  • Oh, how I love Oparanozie, Ordega, Esther Sunday, Chikwelu and Gladys Akpan but that generation has been around for a while and if truth be told, they appeared to struggle for pace and energy against Cameroon in the 2016 Afcon women final when it took the experience of Oparanozie to stab home the killer goal in the 1:0 slim victory.

    Now I charge this girls to go out there and be the faces of the future Super Falcons team that will continue to dominate the landscape of African women’s football and hopefully fulfill their potentials in the World stage one day.
