Emenayo is quicker and younger than Ohale.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Dedetwo(m): 8:26pm On Jul 09|
Onome is glorified tied leg. Oshoala has become a patented stroller. I do not know about Greene of UK while Megan Rapinoe is a mere average player who is very opportunistic. Take USA away from Megan Rapinoe, she is dead in the water.

—————U. Kanu————C. Ihezuo——-
I shall field the above team after it has been subjected to serious friendly matches. Serious contenders are J. Duru, M. Ibrahim, C. Okoronkwo, Akudo Ogbonna, Glory Ogbonna, Opayemi Sunday, Uchechi Sunday, Patricia Innocent, Igbinovia, Tessy Biahwo, M. Ologbosere etc.

I don't agree with you on Rapinoe, i think she's above average although I feel Alex is way better. Green is a winger for the UK team, she had the most touches in against Sweden and US respectively during the world cup. When you watch Europeans and Americans play, it's easy to lose hope in our team. A lot has to be done before the olympics if we are to win any medals, even their psychology isn't up to per. We need quick thinkers and players that aren't intimidated by fair skin. The Falcons I watched during the world cup are not the same team I see against African opponents.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 8:57pm On Jul 09|
Why I prefer Ohale to Emenayo is that Ohale knows how to play out from the back.
Emenayo is an "anywhere belle face" defender. Even when she has enough time to control the ball and pass to a teammate, she would still baloon the ball away.

u are delusional the first name any super falcons coach will pen down is oshoala follow by ajibade...her name is already penned down for the next camp in august ..u can stay there crying and hating
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 9:02pm On Jul 09|
During the last WC, most of our players dwelt too long on the ball, trying to figure out the next move. That allowed our opponents to easily dispossess the player in possession, and/or cut out passes with ease.
I appreciate Dennerby's counter-attacking philosophy; it can be useful when playing against teams that love to possess the ball a lot and teams with relatively slow defenders. The problem he had is that the players were, 60% of the time, clueless about how to mount effective attacks on the opponents' goal.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by isan(m): 9:06pm On Jul 09|
99% of your stupid substitutes will never smell super falcons is like u a coach in nwpl u want push your average players to super falcons

The person is not a coach but a mercenary. I guess Nigeria is in deep trouble with stream of thought expressed in above post.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Dedetwo(m): 9:32pm On Jul 09|
I repeat, Megan Rapinoe, is an average soccer player. There is a reason Crystal Dunn is stock at the left back behind Megan Rapinoe. You were correct when you touched on psychology. Insert Megan Rapinoe in any team from African country baring, maybe, RSA, she could be below average. Christen Press is more enterprising as a winger than Rapinoe. I do not know if the continent of Africa has thinkers.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Dedetwo(m): 9:36pm On Jul 09|
Why should a defender involve in ball joggling within his/her eighteen yard box? If Balogun was Emenayo, Nigeria/Madagascar duel would have been a different result.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 9:41pm On Jul 09|
When I said "playing out from the back", I didn't mean that the defender should be joggling with the ball inside her box. What I mean is that the defender should have the composure to pass the ball to a midfielder (or fellow defender) when one opposition player is charging towards her, and when she isn't under any sort of immediate pressure from the opposition.
But in instances where two (or more) opposing forwards are trying to close her down, she can then balloon the ball away or hit a long ball to our forwards.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Dedetwo(m): 9:53pm On Jul 09|
I stand by the reaction of a defender who adopts a total football style.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by isan(m): 10:05pm On Jul 09|

You need to watch Megan Rapinoe from 2011 till date, she started off as an attacking midfielder, she was never a striker. Her duties then was to distribute the balls to the Forwards.

Awcon 2020 will feature 12 teams
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 10:44pm On Jul 17|
Yes oh. I've been in favor of expanding the tournament, ever since I discovered that the AFROBASKET Women's tournament features 12 teams.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 11:01pm On Jul 17|
The Republic of Congo have pulled out of hosting next year's AWCON due to lack of financial capacity!
If Nigeria were to step in to host, I think Uyo, Port Harcourt and Lagos (either Agege stadium or TBS) could host the matches.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by BascoVanVeli(m): 11:57pm On Jul 17|
Bayelsa have a good stadium. It hosted the last Aiteo Cup final.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 7:05pm On Jul 19|
FIFA reportedly wants Nigeria to host the 2020 U-20 World Cup. If Nigeria is eventually awarded the hosting rights, it would become the first African country to host a FIFA women’s tournament.

Uchenna Kanu scored to help her team into the WPSL playoff final.

Wait a minute Ucheibe Christy plays in Sweden? When did this one happen? Great move here.

Uchenna Kanu wins the trophy and player of the tournament award
Pensacola FC wins 2019 WPSL championship with late extra-time winner
Pensacola News Journal
Eric J. Wallace| Pensacola News Journal
Pensacola FC finally hit pay dirt in its third straight appearance in the Women’s Professional Soccer League championship game.
Mollie Rouse set up Briana Morris’s game-winning goal in the 118th minute to lift Pensacola FC Women to a 4-3 win over Utah Royals FC in extra time on Sunday in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The goal lifted PFC to its first WPSL title since its first championship in 2012.
Nigeria international Uchenna Kanu earned Most Outstanding Player for her tournament efforts. Kanu finished with two goals on the weekend.
PFC (12-0) fell short in its last two championship game appearances, but avenged its 2018 loss in this year’s semifinal with a 3-2 win over Seattle Sounders Women on Friday.
The team’s leading goalscorer entering the championships, Morris scored twice for PFC on Sunday, tying the game with her first off a corner kick in the 48th minute after Utah entered the second half with a 1-0 advantage.
Set pieces paid more dividends for PFC in the second half as Brazilian Ana Paula Silva Santos answered Utah’s second goal in the 60th minute with an inch-perfect free kick from the top of the box.
Kanu gave PFC its first lead of the afternoon just a few minutes later as Kanu nodded in a Santos corner kick.
PFC held its lead into the game’s dying moments but conceded in the 89th minute to push the 3-3 game into extra time.
Utah Royals controlled possession for much of extra time, but PFC didn’t crack.
That allowed Kanu to break down the left wing on a counter attack in the 117th minute and pushed into the box before finding Rouse at the opposite post. Rouse fainted at a shot before squaring across to Morris, who deftly finished her third goal of the weekend to secure the title.
PFC's first title came in 2012 with a 4-0 win over Boston Azters. That title came just a year after PFC played its inaugural season.
Pensacola FC Women plays its home games at Ashton Brosnaham Sports Complex. The team features a collection of college soccer players from Pensacola and around the Southeast.

FIFA has approved the expansion of the Women’s World Cup to 32 teams!! Going by the precedent set when the men’s word cup was expanded to 32 teams, I’ll predict that Africa will be allocated two more slots.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by elyte89: 6:21am On Aug 04|
We shld b given just one slot more,even d 3 we av @ d moment, we re not justifying it @ d moment
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by TheSuperNerd(m): 7:06am On Aug 04|
The AWCON has to be expanded then. Five more slots mean in an 8-team AWCON, the best Third placed team qualifies for the FIFA WWC.
Read it has been expanded to 12. Good one.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by TheSuperNerd(m): 7:08am On Aug 04|
Here in lies my answer. AWCON of twelve teams is fine. There is a Quarter finals stage meaning Africa's fifth team (if 5 slots is allowed) would come from the best Quarterfinalist.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 7:41am On Aug 04|
Either the fifth African team would be decided by a mini-playoff amongst the 4 quarterfinal losers, or CAF would just pick the best of the quarterfinal losers.
But, realistically, I don’t see FIFA allocating more than four slots to Africa. After all, African teams have only advanced to the knockout rounds of the WWC on three occasions - Nigeria in 99, Cameroon in 2015, and both Nigeria and Cameroon in 2019.
The best chance of having 5 African teams at the 2023 World Cup rests on whether South Africa will be awarded the hosting rights.
