Chidinma Okeke the FC Robo player who had the honours of representing Nigeria at the U20 World cup and the senior women’s world cup both in France, took time to remember her coach – Oshahon Emmanuel who insisted in switching her roles on the field of play.
She made this known after her outstanding performance against Osun babes at the Legacy pitch, National stadium in a week 2 home match.
“Coach Osahon had prepared me for the future , he constantly used me in different wings both in training and matches.
And when the opportunity came knocking at the falconet camp from Coach Christopher Danjuma , I took it with both hands and the world witnessed it”
She further explained that her performance at the age grade world cup earned her a spot in the senior national team, the super Falcons.
“I was the youngest in the Super Falcons and I never knew I would have the opportunity at the highest level to play. Fortunately for me it did come and I impressed my coach, team mates and fans ”
For the young star the assist she gave Oshoala for a desired goal was memorable.
“I will willingly add value to my club FC Robo , however my utmost dream is to play abroad.
My mentor used to be Rasheedat Ajibade as we played similar roles then but now I adore Sergio Ramos” She concluded.
