Nigerian Female National Team, Prepared To Face France......(see Pic) / Nigerian Coaches Who Have Coached Foreign Clubs And National Teams / President Buhari Give N1million Each To Nigerian Female National Basketball Team (2) (3) (4)

Uchenna Kanu is Versatile too, can play in any position upfront..she uses both feets effectively and she's a good header.
Oparanozie is the Captain, She's getting back to form so i see no reason why she should be bench....and experience is on her side..
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by BascoVanVeli(m): 10:40am On May 12|
This is what the Super Falcons failed to do to Equitorial Guinea in and Zambia. I have always maintained that the coach was not selecting the best players and now he can see that with the right personnel we can actually play eye catching football. Cynthia Aku has to have put her self slap dab in the conversation off her performance yesterday and the same goes for Evelyn Nwabuoku. I think it will be hard for some players to get back in the SF because these players look up for it and I expect the trend to continue until they lift the WAFU trophy
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by ykalhaji(m): 2:37pm On May 12|
No way any of these WAFU Falcons start in the world cup especially in the attack positions. The coach isn't that crazy.Now as they progress, they will be subbed in. Anyways it is a good way to get the girls some good international exposure and to give the main players something to light a fire under them, you don't perform, you have a young hungrier mate ready to replace you.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by naijaseeker: 7:23am On May 13|
Are you sure, believe me, I think some of them may enter the team. Defence, Midfield. Attack unlikely, but I assume Kalu and Oparanozie may be playing one half each

NFF COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT
France 2019: Dennerby lists Ebi, Oparanozie, 25 others for World Cup final camp
Defensive bulwark Onome Ebi, midfield lubricator Ngozi Okobi and power forward Desire Oparanozie top the list of 27 players that Super Falcons’ Head Coach Thomas Dennerby has listed for the final camp in Austria ahead of the 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup finals taking place in France 7th June – 7th July 2019.
Goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi, defenders Josephine Chukwunonye, Osinachi Ohale and Ngozi Ebere, midfielders Rita Chikwelu and Halimatu Ayinde and forwards Asisat Oshoala and Francisca Ordega, who all played key roles in the Super Falcons’ ninth continental triumph in Ghana late last year, are also included.
Dennerby has also picked Uchenna Kanu, who has shown tremendous firepower at the ongoing WAFU Women’s Cup in Abidjan with eight goals in two matches, as well as home –based professionals Amarachi Okoronkwo, Evelyn Nwabuoku, Chidinma Okeke and Chiamaka Nnadozie.
Nigeria’s final list of 23 players for the 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup finals will emerge from this group of 27, with four players to be cut towards the end of the two-week camping in Austria.
NFF’s Head of Women Football, Ruth David told thenff.com on Monday that the African champions will depart from Abuja for Austria on Monday, 20th May for the Avita Resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf – the same facility where the Super Eagles had their final camping programme just before the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Super Falcons will depart from Austria on 4th June direct to Reims, where they open their World Cup campaign against Norway on 8th June.

|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by olapluto(m): 2:34pm On May 13|
Worst time to release this list. Why will the players put extra effort in WAFU cup if they know they're not even in the list?
So Courney Dike isnt good enough? Maybe not fit enough.
The coach has kept his words though. He picked 8 of the WAFU player. Now he will drop 4 and I think it will be 3 attackers and 1 goalie. (Uchendu, Umotong and Ogebe) might drop out.
I met Ogbonna Chukwudi sometime last month in Stockholm and she wasnt in top shape. I fear she might drop out too.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 3:03pm On May 13|
olapluto:You're right about Oghonna Chukwudi...She's currently not in top form, i just hope her experience help her out.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by olapluto(m): 4:18pm On May 13|
Schemerkhiz:I really like Alice Ogebe, and I think she will make the team ahead of Chukwudi.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by isan(m): 4:24pm On May 13|
1 goalkeeper ,2 mildfielders and 1 attacker to be dropped
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by BascoVanVeli(m): 5:11pm On May 13|
I don't think the list should ever be released while a tournament is ongoing.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 5:42pm On May 13|
My prediction for the final 23 are:
GK: Nnadozie, Oluehi, Jonathan
DF: Chukwunonye, Ebi, Michael, Ebere, Okeke, Ohale
MF: All midfielders except Chukwudi.
FW: All forwards except Alice Ogebe
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by PDPGuy: 5:49pm On May 13|
There are 26 players, not 27 in the preliminary list
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 6:37pm On May 13|
I mean, I NEVER EXPERRED IT!
With only 6 defenders in the provisional squad, it is quite safe to say that CHIDINMA OKEKE, a huge revelation in 2018 class of Falconets, IS ON HER WAY TO FRANCE for next month's FIFA Women's World Cup.
1 goalkeeper and in all likelihood, 1 midfielder plus 2 forwards will be dropped when the Coach Dennerby finally makes up his mind. WHO ARE THE SURPLUS?
27 SUPER FALCONS FOR WORLD CUP FINAL CAMP
Tochukwu Oluehi, Alaba Jonathan, Chiamaka Nnadozie, Christy Ohiaeriaku
Osinachi Ohale, Ngozi Ebere, Onome Ebi, Josephine Chukwunonye, Faith Michael, Chidinma Okeke
Cecilia Nku, Rita Chikwelu, Ngozi Okobi-Okeoghene, Evelyn Nwabuoku, Ogonna Chukwudi, Halimatu Ayinde, Amarachi Okoronkwo
Desire Oparanozie, Anam Imo, Asisat Oshoala, Chinaza Uchendu, Uchenna Kanu, Rasheedat Ajibade, Francisca Ordega, Ini-Abasi Umotong, Alice Ogebe
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by BascoVanVeli(m): 6:52pm On May 13|
Honestly it would be a disgrace to drop Glory Ogbonna despite her top draw performances in these games. She has like 10 assists in 2 matches, I don't know what else she has to do to get considered in a right back position that is porous at the moment. Wogu and Esther Sunday are also important because we don't have any convincing winger coming off the bench.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by naptu2: 12:32pm On May 14|
Nigeria vs Mali at 5pm today (WAFU Women's Cup).
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by ykalhaji(m): 2:42pm On May 14|
I guess, performances at the training camp will determine that. Have you seen the list ? What are your thoughts on it ?
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by ykalhaji(m): 2:47pm On May 14|
You are right. Now the incentive for team cohesion in this WAFU tournament is gone. It is to shine and try to get noticed and picked up by a club. They will definitely not be passing to certain players no more.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 4:12pm On May 14|
Line up Alaba Jonathan Glory Ogbonna Mariam Ibrahim Cynthia Aku Osarenoma Igbinovia Evelyn Nwabouku [C] Esther Sunday Amarachi Okoronkwo Alice Ogebe Uchenna Kanu Chioma Wogu

Pls wat player wears jersey number 3?
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by olapluto(m): 7:47pm On May 14|
BascoVanVeli:I think it's Alice Ogebe. Well drilled by the coach and most likely going to France.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by naptu2: 8:08pm On May 14|
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by BascoVanVeli(m): 8:57pm On May 14|
Ok thanks. She has been top drawer at that right back position. She might have like 10 assists
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by olapluto(m): 9:43pm On May 14|
BascoVanVeli:She's actually a winger. She's just one of the handiwork of the coach. Same thing he's doing with Anam Imo, converting wingers to right back. Defensively solid and attacking potential.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Bowaley17(m): 2:46am On May 15|
What time is the semi-final match. Which station would be showing it
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by olapluto(m): 9:27am On May 15|
Bowaley17:Tomorrow at 6:30pm 9ja time, we play Ghana in the semi final. Not sure what channel shows it, but it should be available online.
|Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 3:08pm On May 15|
Alice Ogebe is currently the most improved Home based player in the 27 List of players for the final World cup Preparation...
She will make a good Right Back if fully Converted...she has the pace, defensively stable, her pull out from the Flanks are topnotch.
