‘Aiteo Cup over for Bayelsa Queens’



Rivers Angels head coach, Edwin Okon has said top-flights and neighbours, Bayelsa Queens are merely coming for sightseeing in Port Harcourt.

The Jewel of Rivers are hosts of the Restoration Girls in Wednesday’s Aiteo Cup semifinals second leg clash at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.
The Garden City landladies and Cup holders were held to 2-2 draw by the Yenagoa side in the acrimonious first leg clash at the Nembe City Stadium.

Okon said his side are poised to once again prove their overwhelming superiority over the visitors, Bayelsa Queens.


“It was actually in Yenagoa that we picked the Aiteo Cup final ticket at the expense of Bayelsa Queens.

“However, we are not relaxing but working very hard to ensure there is no mistake when both sides clash in the reverse fixture on Wednesday in Port Harcourt.

“I think this year’s Aiteo Cup is over for Bayelsa Queens as they are merely coming to Port Harcourt for sightseeing.

“We will turn them back empty-handed as we are fielding same squad that held them at their backyard.

“I do not have any injury worry at the moment as the players are all good to go come on Wednesday.

“Bayelsa Queens fought us at their home and even tore the referee’s card we will not do anything uncivil we will receive them well, accord them due respect but will not discuss the three points with them.

“We are Cup holders our desire is to go ahead to defend the title successfully,” said the former Super Falcons coach to supersport.com.

Aggregate winners of the clash will have both legs in the Aiteo Cup final to confront the winners between Ibom Angels and Abia Angels/Confluence Queens.

Well, the NFF should just look ahead to the 2018 AWC because neither Burkina Faso nor Gambia should pose even a slight threat to the Super Falcons.

Off topic..
Equatorial Guinea is back for the qualifiers, ban lifted.
I guess CAF realized such a lengthy ban could set football backwards in that country and CAF need more teams to stand up to Superfalcons.

OKON BLAMES DEFENSIVE BLUNDERS FOR RIVERS ANGELS' DEFEAT
By Samuel Ahmadu





Following their opening defeat against Delta Queens, the Jewel of Rivers gaffer attributes the south-south derby loss to their defensive errors

Rivers Angels coach Edwin Okon has blamed defensive blunders for his side's Nigeria Women Premier League Super Four tournament 2-0 loss to Delta Queens on Monday.

The Port Harcourt based side bowed to Delta following strikes
from Amerat Adebisi and Rosemary Okezie in their opening match.

Despite the defeat, the former Super Falcons coach is confident they will bounce back in a replay of last final against Nasarawa Amazons on Tuesday.


"It was a bad day for us and we should have taken some of our chances in the match," Okon told Goal .

"The goals we conceded were from our defensive blunders we committed during the game. We could have done better to avoid conceding those goals if we really defended well.

"We have to move on, it is just our first game and we will work on those areas we need to correct our mistakes in our next game.

"We will surely come out stronger against Nasarawa Amazons. We still have a lot to fight for in the tournament. We can still defend our title."

According to information gathered by allnigeriasoccer.com , the Nigeria Football Federation are set to announce the appointment of former Houston Dash manager Randy Jordan Waldrum as the new Nigeria Women's National Team coach in the coming days.

Three local coaches have been selected by the Federation to assist Randy Waldrum in carrying out his duties.

Edwin Okon has been appointed as the first assistant coach, Super Falcons record cap holder Maureen Mmadu is the second assistant coach, while the goalkeeper trainer is Auwal Bashar.

It was also recommended that Justin Madugu should manage the U17 Women's National Team, the Flamingoes, and he'll be assisted by Ajuma Peter Otache and Queen Akpan, while Taiwo Tundun is the goalkeeper trainer.

The 61-year-old Waldrum, who was a midfielder during his playing career, previously managed Pittsburg State University, University of Tulsa, University of Notre Dame and Trinidad and Tobago (women) teams.

This is pure unadulterated bull shit!

Maureen Madu, with her experience in coaching teams in Sweden, is eminently qualified to be head coach of the Super Falcons. Moreover, NFF would have saved money by hiring her, unless Aiteo is also responsible for Waldum’s salary.

To add salt to injury, they brought back Edwin Okon as a member of the coaching crew The guy who lacks tact with regard to games vs non-African teams. Chai

Prolific Nigeria International Striker Scores Again For Brighton & Hove




Prolific Nigerian international striker Ini Umotong wrote her name on the score-sheet again as Brighton & Hove Albion began their FA WSL Continental Cup campaign with a 4-2 victory over Yeovil Town at Culver Road on Wednesday evening.

Umotong made it 2-0 when she rounded the keeper before firing the ball into an empty net in the 42nd minute.

The 23-year-old would have broken the deadlock after five minutes but her effort was saved by Laura Sullivan, before she saw her header come off the crossbar moments later.

The Seagulls' other goals were scored by Kate Natkiel (2) and Fliss Gibbons, while Paige Sawyer and Green scored in the closing minutes for the visitors to make the final score 4-2.

Umotong netted on her Brighton debut against Aston Villa on September 24 before increasing her goal tally against Durham.
Born in Calabar, she was part of the Super Falcons squad at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada.

Waldrum's CV does interest me though... and Okon again? well.... I like the way his team plays beautiful attacking football (the game against Sweden comes to mind) but he is quite limited when it comes to tactical maneuvers.... hope he has stepped up a bit.

IHEZUO POWERS BIIK KAZYGURT INTO UEFA WOMEN'S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE ROUND OF 16
By Samuel Ahmadu, Correspondent




The former Falconets star scored as her side progressed to the last 16 on away goal advantage over Scott Booth's ladies on Thursday


Chinwendu Ihezuo's lone strike powered BIIK Kazygurt into the Uefa Women's Champions League round of 16 despite losing 4-1 to Glassgow City on Thursday.

Having held a 3-0 first leg lead, the forward's goal was all the visitors required to advance on away goals despite the Scottish outfit comeback win at Petershill Park.

The 20-year-old got her side the vital away goal in the 19th minute before her Kazakhstan side bowed to Abbi Grant's hat-trick and Noelle Murray's strike.


It was the former Falconets star's second goal in the competition since her strike led them to the round of 32 last year, and now the result will see them feature in the last 16.

They will know their next opponents in Monday's round of 16 draw with first leg encounter slated for November 9 and return leg a week later.

AITEO Cup: Angels on parade in Jos




Only days after a colourful men’s finale at the Agege Stadium, Lagos, the women’s finale of the 2017 AITEO Cup competition will hold at the Rwang Pam Stadium, Jos on Wednesday, 18th October 2017.

Cup holders Rivers Angels trade tackles with Ibom Angels in what promises to be a fascinating encounter in the Tin City .

A 4-0 win over six-time finalists Bayelsa Queens in the second half of the second leg of their semi final fixture ensured Edwin Okon's ladies stand on the brink of claiming the title for the seventh time since 2010.

Apart from the determination to claim the mouth –watering sum of N10 million winner’s prize money, the Port Harcourt side will look to claim the first crown under the new AITEO sponsorship.

Ibom Angels, who edged Abia Angels 3-2 on aggregate in the semi finals, will no doubt be inspired by the victory of their men’s team, Akwa United in Sunday’s final, with the Promise Keepers running away 3-2 winners after penalty shoot out following a 0-0 draw with Niger Tornadoes in regulation time.

Interestingly, the Uyo side coached by Whyte Ogbonda (previously Edwin Okon’s assistant) was the only team that secured a draw in Port Harcourt during the just –ended Nigeria Women Premier League regular season.

Rivers Angels are Aiteo Cup champs

Rivers Angels head coach Edwin Okon says the team's Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) Super 4 served as a tonic that helped the side to win the women's Aiteo Cup title.

The Jewel of Rivers defeated Ibom Angels 4-1 on penalties after the fulltime score stood at 1-1 in Wednesday’s Aiteo Cup final clash at the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos to claim their Cup seventh title.

Forward Cynthia Aku gave the Garden City side the lead in the 49th minute while defender Glory Ogbonna evened scores for the Orange Ladies in the 53rd minute to end the hotly contested encounter one goal apiece.
Okon praised God for helping the Port Harcourt side win the Cup back to back.

“The poor NWPL Super 4 performance challenged us greatly as we were not expected to perform so poorly in the competition.

“After the NWPL Super 4 disappointment in Benin it looked like everything had ended for us.

“However, I charged the players to forget about the Super 4 disappointment and concentrate fully on the Aiteo Cup.

“That did the magic and we thank God for granting us our heart's desire.

“The joy of winning the Aiteo Cup is quite overwhelming and more rewarding is the personal award of the best coach of the championship to me.

“Ibom Angels are a good side coming this far to play in the final for the first time but I think the better side won on the day,” said the former Super Falcons coach to supersport.com.

Okon said his side will work very hard to reclaim the Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) title in the upcoming league season.

“History has it that any year we missed any of the titles we come back the next season to win the double.

“We are going to fortify the team from the goalkeeping, defence, midfield to attack to ensure we come back as the winners in the coming season,” said Okon.
The Port Harcourt side pocketed the princely sum of Ten Million Naira (N10m) as well as the Aiteo Cup trophy while the runners-up, Ibom Angels, took home the sum of Five Million Naira (N5m).

He coached Super Falcons defender Osinachi Ohale at Dash during the 2014 season.
