How the heck is an old mama like Faith Ikidi still being considered for international call ups? Someone that has not even featured for Nigeria in over 3 years? What the heck is Ordega doing on the list?
Who on earth are these jokers recommending over the hill players to Randy Waldrum, when we should be building for the future? Nigerians want to watch exciting new and youthful players, not 40 something year old women. Faith Ikidi? I mean, seriously

Ifeoma Onumonu is out for Personal reasons...

As For Ashleigh Plumptre, She is not injured. she can't play for us yet. The matches (Aisha Buhari Invitational Tournament) are fifa approved matches and her clearance is not sorted yet. So, she's got to wait. However, the process will be sorted before October, according to NFF authorities. The biggest challenge was her passport which has now been sorted

Aisha Buhari Cup gets new kickoff date

The maiden Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tournament (Aisha Buhari Cup) early scheduled to officially kick-off on Monday, September 13 will now commence effectively on Wednesday, September 15 till Tuesday, September 21, 2021.

The slight shift in kick-off date is necessitated by two key factors, namely an expressed request by the participating teams that their foreign-based players would not be able to arrive in Lagos for the football showpiece any time earlier than Tuesday, September 14 and the world football governing body, FIFA’s Type 1 window stipulation that teams shall play two matches each with two full rest days between each match to possibly allow for players’ recovery in case of injury.

Accordingly to the Director of Organisation for the Aisha Buhari Cup, Aisha Falode the LOC acceded to the teams’ request and FIFA’s requirement due to the committee’s respect for the nation’s First Lady, Dr. (Mrs.) Aisha Buhari in whose name the high profile football showpiece wishes to honour as well avail the teams the necessary ambience and opportunity to hit the tournament venues with their various best legs.

“There is a slight change in kickoff date for the Aisha Buhari Cup, the invitational tournament will now run from September 15 – 21 against an early commencement schedule date, September 13 – 21, 2021. This is in compliance with the force majeure article in the tournament’s regulation – chapter 4, article 4.3.4. and article 51.1. Teams and their members of official delegation are to arrive in Nigeria on 13 September 2021.

“The participating teams requested for the slight change after they realised that their foreign-based players would not be able to arrive in Lagos earlier than Tuesday, September 14.

“The teams want to have their best legs available for the tournament especially as almost the teams are using the invitational tournament as preparations for the upcoming qualifiers for the Nation’s Cup.

“Again, there is the FIFA’s Type 1 window requirement that stipulates that teams shall play two matches each with two full rest days between each match to allow for players’ recovery from possible injury.

“The LOC has utmost respect for the nation’s First Lady, Dr. (Mrs.) Aisha Buhari in whose name and honour the invitational tournament is instituted and will key into measures and requests toward making it big for the teams,” said the renowned broadcast journalist.

The Aisha Buhari Foundation’s Future Assured Programme (FAP) focuses on women and girl-child as well as vulnerable people like widows, orphans and the disabled across the country. The programme involves training for entrepreneurial skills and provision of starter packs, conditional and unconditional cash transfers and provision of business tools.

The Aisha Buhari Cup is in honour of Nigeria’s First Lady, Dr. (Mrs.) Aisha Buhari and will be played by Africa’s powerhouses namely hosts, Nigeria, Cameroun, Ghana, South Africa, Mali and Morocco from September 15 – 21 in two stadia in Lagos, Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan and the ‘Soccer Temple' Agege.

I know, but I am speaking of her interest in the national team. For example, she seem not to really care much nor does she seem so enthusiastic. Maybe I'm just the one overthinking things sha.

Well, we have one in here who works closely with the team, Schemerkhiz. I read where he said she opted out of the Aisha buhari cup list for personal reasons. So I am not so sure. I believe he should have more info on if Ifeoma still has Nigeria in mind for future engagements.

And I understand your fears. You thinking maybe with her doing so well in the NWSL, she could maybe be considering the US option right? Well, time will tell.

Ex-England youth star Ashleigh Plumptre picked up Nigerian passport as she prepares to fly with @NGSuper_Falcons. Tim Plumptre: “A very complicated process. The most difficult task to navigate through. I’ve now ensured that our Nigerian heritage link will continue past my life.”
