Omidiji “Honoured, Proud” To Be Invited For France Vs Super Falcons Friendly

By Johnny Edward:
Sofia Omidiji is delighted to have received an invitation to the Super Falcons squad ahead of their international friendly game against France this Friday,  reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Omidiji, a forward with  Nigerian-Filipino heritage who was present at the Super Eagles World Cup jersey launch in February, plays for the women’s team of Dutch club S.B.V. Excelsior.
Omidiji was dropped from the Falconets squad that represented Nigeria at the 2016 FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Papau Guinea but she has promised to give her best to the team.

“Honored and Proud to have gotten a callup with the Nigerian women’s National team @thenffofficial for the friendly against France this coming Friday. Will give everything I’ve got and then some for the country,” Omidiji wrote on her Instagram page.

“Can’t gram or tweet how this feels- it’s indescribable. Honored and delighted to go do battle with my sisters- all deserving and amazing players that I’ve watched over the years that have all made our country proud.

“Dreams definitely do come true. Just a small girl from vegas with passion for football and green white green runnin through her veins.
“Every and anybody that’s ever believed in me, said something positive about me, encouraged and motivated me and contributed to this- I thank you. Truly no words to describe the feeling but to thank everyone.”

    What a girl! This out-pouring of emotion simply because this beautiful sister of ours was invited to play for her fatherland evokes tears. She sees it as a thing of pride to represent Nigeria unlike some of her male counterparts who think Nigeria is second class. God bless you, my sister. May your enthusiasm be crowned with personal and national victories.
