    The likes of Morrocco, South African and Tanzania are doing something interesting in their women’s football and Nigeria may start playing catch up soon if care isn’t taken.

    • 4th in the Women’s Afcon, losing to Zambia, Morocco and South Africa. If that is not ‘playing catch up’ I wonder what else is.

      • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

        According to our wise elders, “Once na accidental, twice na coincidence, three times god hand dey inside be that”. So Let’s just assume for now that our 4th placing at AWCON was accidental.

        But with the little but steady strides the likes of Tanzania and Morrocco are making, I fear for Nigeira o.

        Imagine Tanzania producing 2 teams out of 2 in the group stages of CAF male club competitions and producing a semifinalist that lost in the dying minutes to a Nigerian team in the Womens version.

        See what their U17s too played at their maiden appearance at the U17 women’s world cup.

        As the Yorubas will say, “Ewu n be loko longe o”

    I watched Morroco play last AFcon. I think their level now is higher than that of Nigeria..The NFF must do something fast about this turn in tide

      This Moroccan team walloped our Rivers Angels 3-0 at the last edition. They also put our Bayelsa Queens to the sword at this edition.

      Can we just all agree now that the Moroccan Women’s league is better than ours….? I can bet it’s only a matter of time before female players from the local league start migrating to Morrocco. It only takes 1 brave girl to start the exodus.

    Morrocan female league is more organized than our league but not better than us in terms of quality. Nigeria female leagu is still the best. These countries have one super team like PSG and the rest are playing catup.

    • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

      Yea…the way their male league is also not better than ours because they only have 2 super teams in Wydad and Raja Casablanca.

  • GEORGE OMOKO 2 years ago

    Two Sundown players sent off! When Nigeria played Morocco at WAFCON, two Nigerian were sent off! Na wetin?

      My brother that’s why you see North African teams that dominate African football perform badly on international competitions. They have mastered ways to dominate African football unjustly. In international competitions, West African teams are the one’s that do well. Check the U17,U20, Olympics and world cup. These North Africans will never be winning on a level unbiased playing ground.

        We pay dollars to our teams . We got good coaches from Europe. We have good field .we buy ur best legs … So even the referee knows wat to do when they get to the field. .we dont. Bribe we only give . And ur teams don’t know the rules of the game

    • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

      And where in the rule of football is it stated that a team cannot be given 2 red cards if the players commit red car offences…? If you didn’t watch the game live, at least you should watch highlights before coming to raise unnecessary alarms.

    Let Morrocco start translating whatever they are gaining now to the world stage. That’s when I can say they’ve really arrived.

    At last AWCON, a lot of factors worked against the Super Falcons, coupled with the fact that Morroccan girls were really desperate to win. They used everything, form referee to intimidation, to home crowd, to carry the day. But trust me, at next year’s FIFA Woomen World Cup,they will be booted out in the first round. We all saw how their u17 team was shown the exit door in India while our girls was there till the very end. This is because at the World stage, there is a level playing gorund. No laser light to the face of the opponent. No compromised and effeminate referees to officiate matches. No intimidation from the home crowd. No, nothing.

    I quite agree that we’ve lost some ground in female football. But anyway,anytime,Super Falcons still remains the team to beat. We may not do well like before at AWCON, because CAF and our powerful rivals are tired of Nigeria winning. There will always be some conspiracies here and there. But at the world stage, anytime, any day, we remain the best African rep.

    We only concern is the lack of political will by our leaders to develop the local league. This should be the building block for the national team. It can provide an edge for these south and north African teams. But I strongly believe that with the level of talent available to us here at the grassroot, we shouldn’t have issues raising strong strong at any level, at anytime
