The media officer of the Super Falcons of Nigeria Jane Nweze was full of praise especially for the home based players that represented Nigeria at the women’s world cup hosted by France due to the positive value they added in the senior national team and age grade national teams.
“There has been a remarkable consistency in the league for the third year running, glamorous Super 4 and of course the AITEO cup had put the players in top form and shape”.

Chidinma Okeke of FC Robo Queens of Lagos takes on Carolin Simon and M.Hegerin of Germany during the 2019 FIFA World Cup in France.

Chidinma Okeke was a good ambassador in France and stepped into the shoes of Faith Ikidi comfortably when she got injured” She explained.
She further attributed the potential exhibited by Chiamaka Nnadozie in the world stage as a result of a very rigorous and strong league back home.


” She took the world by storm and also emerged as the youngest goalkeeper to have kept a clean sheet in a match at the world cup history, and to cap it all Oluehi was even the first choice also from the NWPL.
That will give you an idea of how talented the NWPL players are. ” She concluded.

Even though I didn’t get to play, the atmosphere at the stadium was fantastic with a massive crowd, it has toughened me as a player and I am certainly a different player as we embrace the new season”. She stated.
