You just said something nice, Misplace passes sometimes which is her major down side if not Halimatu is good..
She used to be a great attacking Midfielder then during her U17 days before her transition to the Center Midfield role.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 3:49pm|
Hmmm... MAYBE is another Halimatu Ayinde, She sometimes get off the pedals but still the best Central/Box-to-Box Midfielder
I would love to see a Midfield of Regina Otu, Halimatu Ayinde and Tony Payne..
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 3:47pm|
Still average or you want to compare her to the once we have had in the best when they were at their best?
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 2:27pm|
Surely they do, just that she got injured before the end of this past season ( May) which she had a surgery on and she is currently back but not yet fit to play..
She has been watching from the sideline since this season started in Germany... Just 3games though.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 1:49pm|
Glory Ogbonna still very much average, she's not that kind of Left Back we need right now. Her deliveries (pullouts) from the left wing wasn't okay at all, she would definitely improve very soon with her move to Sweden especially since its very certain that UMEA Ok is moving up to the OBOS DAMALLSVENSKAN next season...
I remembered vividly when Faith Ikidi was Faith Ikidi, the likes of Helen Ukaonu, when Ngozi Ebere was top notch from 2013-2016 which made PSG to sign her, Ugo Njoku did a great job too until she fell out..
We need the kind of Lucy Bronze of England, Hannah Glass and Anderson of Sweden, Sakina Karchaoui of France and USA Meghan Klingenberg type of full backs.. These Ladies boses the Full back position with pace, strength, defensively and excellent work rate..

Yesterday both commentators kept referring to the South African Banyana Banyana as young girls especially the Male one..
Most of their player are already in their 30ties and late twenties especially the Defence.. Janine 34yrs, Mbane 31yrs, Ramalepe 29yrs and Makhubela 24yrs.
Maybe because they were looking so small in size.. these commentators really need to get their facts right before speaking out..
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 1:16pm|
After re-watching the game this morning..
Asisat Oshoala one of the biggest flop of yesterday game, She need exposed Alozie a lot from the right flank when we're without the ball it's either you see her and Oparanozie at the center or she's off position, a player of her caliber with so much pace couldn't even cause any threat with it unlike Thembi kgatlana who utilized her pace very well yesterday...
This isn't Barcelona FC where she's been spoon feed with so many passes.. She need to improve on her own not coming here to complain on the pitch, feeling too big..
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:37am|
Halimatu Ayinde will be back soon, such a Strong Player..
She don da work out already..
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:16am|
Did you guys see how Regina Otu cleaned up the mess in the Midfield yesterday? She gave life to that dead Midfield with her ball wining abilities, passing and covering ground for her team mate...
Regina Otu, Halimatu Ayinde and Tony Payne won't be a Bad idea...
Uchenna Kanu is good but i somehow see her as a better player for the Superfalcons when she comes in as a Substitute...
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:11am|
Going by Experience and number of Caps Onome Ebi, Faith Ikidi, Rita Chikwelu and Osinachi Ohale are supposed to be in position for that...
Since Asisat Oshoala became Captain I haven't seen any impact from her in the team..
If not for the Ageing (Sluggish and can no longer meet up with the pace of the modern game) Onome Ebi and Rita Chikwelu they're still more impactful than Asisat Oshoala she hasn't really offered anything of recent.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:07am|
He who wrote this is full of hatred and can't deal with his emotions.
The whole team, most especially the big names played rubbish in the First half but they hung up Oparanozie to dry...
With Sincerity Regina Otu is the most impressive player, with the additional of Vivian Ikechukwu and Monday Gift..

You all should see this...??
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 8:45am|
Nicole Payne is quick but she isn't close to Patricia George. George was even more versatile from High School down to the Pro she is now she played as positions on the field except as a Goalkeeper.. The only position she didn't play much was the Midfield but the rest she played them well as she used to be a Sprinter before (did track and field, Cross Country), played basketball and also tried out boxing on few occasions..
According to Patty mum she said when George was much smaller she was so scared of her daughter against her mates because she was too strong and fast to the extent that she's always praying that her daughter doesn't hurt any of her mates and opponents whenever they're playing...
You can check both of them out.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 8:13am|
He's aware of of course and he has been working towards that, few of the players brought haven't really impressed much but I believe they all need Maximum game time...
Especially at Center Back..
Osinachi Ohale still have at least 5 years more to go with the Superfalcons..
Ashleigh Plumptre need to be tested here first, can't just make conclusion with her Leicester City game's..
Just like what happened to Michelle Alozie, She did well against the European and American opponents but against the African side that are less technical/tactical and more Physical but had difficulties.. To the area of Alozie not been a natural right back it was exposed more at this Aisha Buhari Cup, but let not forget as in modern day football versatility matters have seen many players who are naturally forwards/Midfielders but play the Full back position very well.. Ana of Barcelona, Crystal Dunn, Rachel Daly and many more..
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 12:45am|
Florence Omagbemi, Mercy Akide Udoh....
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 12:44am|
Yes at Left Back during the Summer Series in US
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 12:43am|
I think Onome Ebi is already at 90+ Caps..
38yrs nor easy, a younger CB can come in immediately..
Time to Scout in from the NWFL....
My greatest pain right now is the injury to Patricia George at the wrong time, she's another quality option as a Full back or a Winger, Skillful, Strong and very fast.. I bet non of our current Defenders are as quick or skillful as her.. Just hope she recovers fully before next month.
Our major problem is getting quality full backs and Midfielders..
Regina Otu 25yrs should be our Defensive Midfielder henceforth, she's more than Capable and hope she moves to a tougher league Soon..
Thank Goodness Halimatu Ayinde has started minor work out... She should be fully back by early next year but we still need someone to play that spot for now...
Tony Payne holds that attacking Midfield role..
The rest can come in as Back up...
One Major problem we have been having of recent is the availability of the Players.. one issue or the other might deny them the chance of coming around...
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 4:45pm On Sep 21|
This is unbelievable..... Nigeria (0)-(3) South Africa
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 4:33pm On Sep 21|
Thank you for the plain Truth...
Nothing Spectacular about them our errors cost us those two goals...

God has Blessed Nigeria with Regina Otu....
She's Good, infact Gooder than expected

Nigeria Score but Goal disallowed by the Center Referee.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 4:19pm On Sep 21|
Goal number two (2) to South Africa
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 4:10pm On Sep 21|
Shitttt... Own Goal from Alozie
GOAL!!! Bayana Bayana have scored from their first opportunity from this game.. a low cross from Kgatlana Tembil to Kgadiete went off target as Alozie score an own.
6' Nigeria 0-1 South Africa

NFF president, Amaju Pinnick says next year's Aisha Buhari Cup will held in Abuja, bigger and better than the first edition. For the 2022 edition he hinted that two European countries will participate in the event that will be held at the renovated MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja, he said these at the celebration of the Super Falcons class of 1999. Meanwhile, the General Manager of Rivers Angels, Matilda Otuene, has celebrated the voting of Rivers Angels as the women Club of the Year. An estactic Matilda said she never expected the award. Monday Gift of FC Robo of Lagos was voted Player of the Year (Local), Assisat Oshoala - Player of the Year (Foreign) and Moses Aduku of Bayelsa Queens, Coach of the Year.

Osinachi Ohale is the fastest among our Defenders right from 2010 till date. You can't beat Ohale in terms of Speed no matter how quick the forward is..
As for Onome Ebi, with the way she's playing even at 38years I bet you she's the best Center Back in Africa. She have got the Experience and her positional awareness gives her the edge over the Younger attackers.
Randy would have paired Ikidi and Ebi but no he didn't because he considered their speed too that's why he paired the younger and quicker Esther Akudo Ogbonna with Onome Ebi against Mali.. Akudo keeps getting better with each game she plays..
Randy will definitely start Rita against the Banyana Banyana of South Africa but I would love to see Coach Randy taking the risk of Playing Regina Otu ahead of Rita Chikwelu in that Defensive Midfield position..
I think Joy Bokiri didn't have a bad game either but some of her double touches let her down in the first half against Mali..
Okobi seems to have lost it but she's arguably the best we have around for the Aisha Buhari Cup right now. It's up to her to be the Okobi she used to be..
Then upfront Desire did well in the first half against Mali but due to our poor Midfield the attack couldn't function..
I will leave her out to heal from the cut she sustained against Mali at the end of the first half...
Play Kanu, Oshoala and Ordega upfront..
Bring in Gift Monday and Vivian Ikechukwu as Substitute..
Amarachi Okoronkwo even after playing in Finland �� for some years back when the finnish league was top notch then during the time of Cynthia Uwak, Soo Adekwage, Juliana Bawa, Joy Okwodua, Racheal Ayegaba hasn't really impressed me till date except her robust style of play.. She's only good at playing against a well known Physical Opponents.
South Africa major strength lies in Thembi kgatlana cause they mainly distribute the balls to her for her to use her pace and Skills but if those supplies can be cut off just like they did during the AWCON final in 2018, the Falcon are good to go..

I pray the Aisha Buhari Invitational Tournament becomes an annual or Biannual event at least..
FIFA President, CAF President and other top official were present yesterday during the Superfalcons game..

This Morocco side is going to be another tough side very soon.. handled by an experience coach with a great resume having won the French women league twice and also the UEFA Women's Champions League twice..
Coach Reynald Pedros is coming with full force, Nigeria, Cameroon, South Africa should watch out
