I will say they're 40% ready to face Guinea... They should face Premier League teams likes Nasarawa Amazon,, Confluence Queens,, Adamawa Queens first to know how ready the team is...Naija Ratels are from the Pro-League side which is not enough to rate how ready the team is.
If they can defeat or hold the likes of Almighty River's Angel, Bayelsa Queens to a draw then i can say they're good enough to qualify for the World Cup..

If you currently look at the Nigeria Women Football League i can't lay hands on any other Goalkeepers better than Tochukwu Oluehi, Chiamaka Nnadozie and Alaba Jonathan...
Onyinyechukwu Okeke who's over 1.82cm tall hasn't leaved up to Expectations though she's still doing fine..
Christy Ohaeriaku can't displaced the above named goalies or you want to bring in Ibubeleye Whyte
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:13pm On Feb 18|
isan:By June 1st Alaba Jonathan will be 28years are you saying she's older than Tochukwu Oluehi who is 32yrs or she's no Longer good enough for the National Team??
Don't forget she was one of our stand out player during the 2016 AWCON in Cameroon, Her performance contributed to the Superfalcons victory in Cameroon especially the Final game against Cameroon.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:08pm On Feb 18|
If you watch her play during the U20 and the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany you wouldn't doubt her Capabilities and what she can bring to the Superfalcons....By the way signing for Linköping FC which is one of the strongest Club in the OBOS DAMALLSVENSKAN in Sweden will also do a great job in her career...
Faith Ikidi is the other Nigerian that have played for Linköping FC and she also won the League with them in 2009..
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:03pm On Feb 18|
isan:I don't think so at 27years she still have a lot to offer considering her experience, skills and pace...her abilities to play any of the positions upfront is something the Coaches would always be happy of...She uses both feets effectively and i can gladly remember her pairing with Oparanozie upfront during their U20 day's..
With her Statistics, she's one player capable of Scoring a goal in every two game which isn't bad for a Striker..

*Nigeria Superfalcons Striker Ebere Orji Sign for Swedish giant Linköping FC*
Nigerian player Ebere Orji joins from Umeå IK and has previously represented Mallbackens IF and Umeå IK once again. Orji scored eleven goals in last year's edition of the Elite and was a strong contributing cause of Umeå's advancement to OBOS Damallsvenskan. - Linköpings FC is a big club in Damallsvenskan and it has been a dream to play there, a dream that has now become true and it will be so exciting, says Ebere Orji. I will do my best, collaborate with my teammates and work hard to win multiple titles.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 12:11am On Feb 18|
Tochukwu Oluehi have been a good goalkeeper right from day one...Her lost of form before the FIFA Women's World Cup Last Year in France, Really baffled me, anyway we now have Chiamaka Nnadozie who's doing great at her tender age!!!
it will be good to have a competition among them for who's going to be the First Choice, either she's wins her Spot back as the First Choice goalie or Chiamaka Nnadozie continues to retain it because she currently seems to be unstoppable..
We also have Alaba Jonathan, our 2016 AWCON heroines in Cameroon...
Onyinyechi Okeke 22yrs old Goalkeeper currently playing for Bayelsa Queens is still one Promising Goalkeeper during her U17 days in 2014... before moving to the U20 in 2016, She is taller than Chiamaka Nnadozie and was very good then..
So many of the followers of the Women football game thought she was going to be the next Superb goalkeeper for the Superfalcons of Nigeria but haven't lived up to Expectations and Chiamaka Nnadozie is already ahead of her in the perking order.....

I Want To See That I Am The Best In Nigeria
Feb 17, 2020 6:51 PM
Super Falcons and Rivers Angels' goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi has spoken on her target for the year 2020.
Tochukwu who let this out on Brila FM Lunch Sport Women Show with Ogechukwu Ogwo said that she wants to see herself going back to being the best goalkeeper that she has ever been.
Speaking on Preseason and the Skill Acquisition programme recently introduced by the Port Harcourt based club, the former Medkila IL safe hands said preseason has been so wonderful with the introduction of the gym session.
"Since i've been in Rivers Angels this is the first time i'm seeing a gym session so i see Rivers Angels are up to the task, they are leaving no stone unturned. They want to make sure that 2020 they grab every trophy, they get their hands on League, the FA Cup and so on'.
She added that it's a good thing for everyone in the club to acquire a skill
" For the Skill Acquisition that we are into, learning how to make soap is a good thing for everyone, i want to see myself making my own soap. With all the instructions given by the person that led us through the skill workshop, i believe if i want to make my own soap i can do it with the knowledge and understanding of what the lady taught us."
When asked of her plans to go play abroad again, she said that it would be a great privilege going back to Europe to continue with her football. Oluehi opened up on her family and coaches being source of inspiration to her career.
The former Bayelsa and Sunshine Queens player appealed to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) board to get things right in terms of organization as it will make home based players compete for national team shirts with their foreign based counterparts.

Rinsola Babajide is a quick player but not as fast as Ordega or Oshoala....
She and the likes of Okobi, Uchenna Kanu and Uchendu can be compared in terms of pace not Oshoala at all.....

Unsung Heroine - Christy Ucheibe
Undoubtedly Nigeria's best player at the 2018 U20 Women's World Cup was goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie but defensive midfielder Christy Ucheibe was absolutely the second best player in the team.
The former U-17 player broke up plays at will to win possession back and pass the ball to her more attacking minded teammates.
Ucheibe is a gem that has been discovered since 2018 and hopefully could be an asset for the Nigeria Superfalcons soonest.

Benfica sign Nigeria midfielder Christy Ucheibe
By Samuel Ahmadu
After an amazing season with Swedish outfit Assi last year, the 19-year-old sealed a move to the Portuguese outfit
Christy Ucheibe has joined Portuguese Liga BPI outfit SL Benfica from Swedish club Assi, on a three-and-half-year deal.
Ucheibe saw out her first professional contract with Swedish club Assi in November 2019 and moved on to Portugal on a free transfer, after she inspired the Elitettan side to win the Norrbetten Cup.
During her one-year spell, the 19-year-old played a prominent role in Assi's 10th place finish in the 2019 season with two goals in 25 games across all competitions for Kenneth Paajarvi's team.
The midfielder, who moved to Sweden from Nigerian side Nasarawa Amazons in April 2019, played a crucial role in helping Nigeria reach the quarterfinal of the 2018 U20 Women's World Cup in France .
Having completed her move to the Portuguese giants, the Nigerian becomes the second African to join the club this year following the arrival of South African striker Thembi Kgatlana last month.
On joining SL Benfica, she told the club website: "I know I'm coming to a very competitive team. It is this demand and the greatness of the club of legend Eusébio that has attracted me.
"I want to help the team win trophies domestically and, one day, shine in the
Champions League . Now I just want to focus on work, on training with my teammates.
"I know that if I play well here I'm going to reach the Nigerian National team too. I can't play yet, but I already love and admire the passion of the Benfica fans."
Following her unveiling by the club's vice president Fernando Tavares on Friday, she becomes the third January signing for Benfica after Ida Dida and Kgatlana, and will wear the shirt number 16.
She also becomes the second Nigerian to be plying her trade in Portugal after compatriot Chinaza Uchendu with Sporting Braga.
Benfica are leaders of the Portuguese Liga BPI log with 42 points after 14 games and Ucheibe will be hoping to impress if handed her debut in Women's Cup clash with Amora on Sunday.

BascoVanVeli:it's a team game (collective effort) though so I can't say...
Atletico Madrid should have signed Ordega permanently, she's that kind of striker i think they need now to do the job from the Wing using pace,skills and good delivering into the Box.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 11:30pm On Feb 09|
BascoVanVeli:Hermaso had a slight knock and she isn't fit yet...
Asisat Oshoala is having the game time she deserves...Her Pace, strength and finishing is one thing the coaches can't do without.
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 9:15am On Feb 07|
The referee really made a great mistake there because there wasn't a foul from Oshoala ... That France Defender fell down after hitting her left leg against Oshoala own, Oshoala was even the one who's supposed to fall down not #19 Aïssatou Tounkara..
That's a Clean goal not a Foul ��
|Sports / Re: Nigeria Female National Teams' Thread by Schemerkhiz: 8:52am On Feb 07|
That's a Goal even if I'm not a referee, considering the Physical tussle and how she was able to get past her markers...
Anyway the referee knows Best.

Stella Mbachu is still one player that hasn't been replaced in the Superfalcons, the Superb Right Winger who can as well come in from the Left side when the occasion arises, many players such as Esther Sunday, Alice Ogebe, Ordega, Loveth Ayila have been labeled the new Mbachu in the past but nono of them were able to replicate her style in the team.
Tony Payne Could possibly become the New Stella Mbachu if she finally play for the Superfalcons of Nigeria.... She have the Speed, Energy and Footworks but that physical side of Mbachu is what I haven't seen yet...

French, German coaches jostle for Falcons’ job
• Okon, Danjuma, Mmadu also listed
From Andrew Abah, Abuja
At least two foreign coaches from France and Germany are among the notable names being considered as the next coach of the national women’s team, the Super Falcons.
The Super Falcons post is one of the prime positions being jostle for after the exit of Swede Thomas Dennerby and other indigenous coaches in the mix include former international and former Falcons assistant coaches, Maureen Mmadu and Ann Chiejinne; with others being past handlers of the team including Bala Nkiyu, Christopher Danjuma and Edwin Okon.
NationSport gathered that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is also in receipt of four applications from foreign coaches desirous to replace Gernot Rohr in case the incumbent Super Eagles handler fails to agree terms with NFF for contract extension.
“What I can tell you is that all former national team coaches applied for their former positions but the NFF Technical Committee is making consultations and looking at the applications submitted and very soon the successful coaches will be announced. You know we have World Cup qualifiers for the women’s U-17 national team (Flamingoes) in the last week of February and U-20 (Falconets) in March this year,” the source who pleaded anonymity said.
However, NFF General Secretary, Sanusi Mohammed, flatly refused to comment on the engagement of national team coaches, saying the technical department along with the consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) has been saddled with the responsibilities of recommending capable hands for vacant national team positions.
