Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum is reportedly setting up a groundwork to welcome fresh players into his squad as he Kicks off his reign as manager of the 11 times African champions

The newly appointed coach will organize a camp in Brazil in sync with the November international break where a number of new players (home based and Nigerian descent abroad) are expected to be present.

Thanks for the update, Schemerkhiz. But training camp in far away Brazil? The cost implication will be heavy on the NFF moving home based players there.

How about the U17 and U20 women world cup qualifiers? Has they been cancelled or postponed?

Let's wait and see what the team has to offer in the field of play..
He would also be giving chance to foreign born player's, so this would probably be a kind of fresh set up especially the Defence..

Flying Officers Cup 2020: Ali, Okeke, Alani Named In Best XI.

Following sunday's conclusion of the 2020 edition of the Flying Officers Cup, staged at the Guards Brigade Stadium, Abuja.







Four Bayelsa Queens players, one each from Confluence Queens, Royal Queens and Nasarawa Amazons, while two each representing Naija Ratels and Edo Queens made the official Flying Officers Cup 2020 team of the tournament. .



The team was selected by a 5- strong panel of technical study group, led by Oluchi Tobechukwu, which also included some top women football journalists. The technical observers made their choices based on various criteria, which had been outlined before the tournament.




1. Onyinyechi Okeke, (Bayelsa Queens)



Okeke was arguably player of the match in the final against Nasarawa Amazons, capping off a marvelous tournament between the sticks for the 'Restoration Girls'. It was hard to blame her for any of the goals the champions conceded. The former Edo Queens Goalie brought a claiming presence to her team's backline.


2. Alani Jumoke (Edo Queens)



Jumoke was quietly effective at right-back for the Obaseki girls. The former Jokodolu Babes defender showed great energy in getting up and down the flank and also made some timely tackles and interceptions at the back and even scored an important goal against Naija Ratels. Her major contender in this position is Naija Ratels Aishat Animashaun, who was also fantastic all through the competition.


3. Uzoamka Igwe (Bayelsa Queens).



Uzoamka played with intelligence and maturity that is usually associated with players of her calibre. She did so well from her left full back position and initiated some of Bayelsa Queens goals.


4. Chioma Oliseh (Royal Queens).



The young forward was terrific and was the engine room of her team, breaking up opposition attacks and starting her team's own with some fine all round displays. Though her side narrowly lost out of semi-final, Oliseh was superb even without captain Osas Enoma. She scored two goals from her position, one from a corner kick against Kaduna Queens, the other a fantastic free-kick against Edo Queens.

5. Paulina Ali (Naija Ratels FC)



It does feel right to label Naija Ratels a surprise package, but Ratels certainly exceeded all expectations at the Flying Officers Cup. Ali was solid and resolute at the back and helped her side concede less than any side in the competition.


6. Abidemi Ibe (Bayelsa Queens)



A top class centre half, Ibe was too strong for most opposing attackers. The former Ibom Angels defender marshalled the Restoration Ladies backline brilliantly, with her reading of the game particularly impressive.


7. Joy Jerry (Bayelsa Queens)



Voted player of the the tournament, her decisive contributions in front of goal and her high work rate from all part of the pitch ensured Bayelsa Queens had a clinical edge to go with their solid foundation. She was practically everywhere on the pitch and was a great leader too.



8. Aminat Bello (Naija Ratels)



She had a great partnership upfront with jolly friend Grace Obi and was involved in general play, conjuring and contributing to match winning moments as Olowookere Bankole's ladies made it all the way to the semi-finals.



9. Joy Omewa (Confluence Queens)


She scored six goals to emerge top scorer, including the famous five goals against Honey Badgers FC. 


Though her side failed to make it past the first round, her influence on the pitch was top-notch and her goals gave her team a good record in the competition. 


10. Osas Igbinovia (Edo Queens)


The Super Falcons midfielder was brilliant in every match she played, helping Edo Queens control possession and demonstrating a useful ability to continually identify and execute the right pass at the right moment. 


11. Chiemere Opara (Nasarawa Amazons)


After a lengthy hiatus from football, because of a career threatening injury, Cheimere Opara scored two important goals for her side, to ensure they got to the final of the Flying Officers Cup. The diminutive forward gave the Christopher Danjuma side a lot of life upfront

The 19yrs Central Defensive Midfielder who's the engine room of Benfica Midfield was in action breaking up play, tidying up the mess and initiating attack for 90minutes as SL Benfica qualify for the next round of the UEFA Women's Champions League..


Without argument she's currently the best Defensive Midfielder Nigeria can boost of right now. Since the U20 FIFA Women's World Cup in France she keeps getting better and better.

With her Superfalcons Defensive Midfielder position is in a safe hand.. #Kante
A Midfield of Ucheibe, Ayinde and Ajibade (#10) should be ok

Rasheedat Ajibade isn't that type of an Attacking Midfielder,..

Ucheibe as DM
Ayinde CM/Box to Box
Okobi AM

Chinaza Uchendu as AM too when Okobi tire out

Ajibade should battle out as one of the Strikers upfront not as a make shift Midfielder

I think she played there against South Africa during the last AWCON. She delivered some key passes which both Oshoala and Desire wasted. Since then, i always feel she is better at that role.

She can play in the Midfield but her natural position is the attack..

Okobi and Chinaza are natural attacking Midfielders who are very good at it.

Exactly, Ajibade will do better playing a little bit upfront, especially in a 442 setup alongside the main striker..

For the Superfalcons in a 4-4-2 Formation Okobi will have to be drafted to either Sides of the Wings, Ucheibe and Ayinde can martial the Midfield, though we still have (Chikwelu, Uchendu) Ordega will always be either in her Favorite Left Wing or the Right..

We have Kanu also whose favourite Position is also the Left Forward

Bring in Ajibade to the right wing as Super Sub because as a starter is a No No ( Watch 2018 AWCON games again you will see how different she's from the Likes of Ordega, Oshoala and Okobi upfront she's not used to them yet)..

The Superfalcons Strength have always been their Pace and Power on the Flank.... Excluding Tactics Nigeria can easily adapt to the American style of play because their strength lies on their Athleticism, Team Work and their Never Say Die Attitude (They don't give up till it's over)...

Naturally we're physically Strong, Fast and also have some Technically gifted Players.

I said it sometime ago about the in activeness of NFF in failing to upgrade the female teams.

For a whole year, there was no friendly match for the female team. This is absurd and unfootball like.

Amaju Pinnick has no interest to develop Nigerian football, even the super eagles they all pay attention to, nothing is progressing there.
