    hello guys our women national team na scam, you guys need to watch this match and see how uknown Nigeria ladies are playing soccer as they are men. even the oyinbo coach is a scam , you need to see the movement of these ladies on and off  the ball to appreciate their fluidity. why do we keep calling foreign players when we have players that Babi play like this, still don’t understand why we have to be paying that sum of money to that coach from USA. God please save Nigeria . up Biafra Up Yoruba nation

    • Because those are our best legs and they all played in Nigeria before leaving for greener pastures. All we need is to mix the foreign based and the home based and come up with a solid team that’s all.

      • You said most of the current super falcons players were the best legs around before they left Nigeria. Well that statement is contradictory because it does not explain the reasons why the performance of this current Bayelsa queens ladies seems to be better than our current super falcons ladies.

        Objectively, majority of these Bayelsa queens ladies will displace half if not three quarter of the super falcons players that Waldrum keep inviting to the supper falcons. Put these Bayelsa queens team against the super falcons and you’ll be surprised that Bayelsa queens will beat them. If you disagree with what some of us ae saying, go and watch Bayelsa queens in this current competition.

        Waldrum has never been objective with invitation and selection of players to the super falcons. He keeps inviting player that are not better than our local league to the super falcons. This is apart from the fact that he knows nothing about female football in Africa.

    This Bayelsa Queens can beat super falcons. Look at Sundowns which forms the bulk of southafrican national team beating our falcon and the zambian team is just Green buffaloes. Morrocan team is FAR.Super Falcons need to be disbanded, invite equal number of home based plus foreign based and select without being partial. I hope our oyebo coach is watching this tournament. The standard equals european womens champions league and African womens cup of nations. I am amazed with the level of female soccer in Africa. Nigeria cannot dominate again.

      Are you for real? A good team is relative to not only opposition, the atmosphere, level of competition, expectations n many many more. We should please stop ridiculing sacrifice players make to represent us. Yes bayesa utd has players with potentials but they are no where near the level of most of those falcon players. So please we should stop this campaign of disbanding the team.
      …..Here is a video of yesterday game.

    Who do you guys like this? Why are Nigerians ever so sentimental i their judgement like this?

    How can you guys start believing that Bayelsa Queens are now better than Super Falcons just because they beat a hapless Egyptian club and Congolese club. Did you forget to mention that Mamelodi Sundowns beat same team you are hyping by 2:1? And stop deceiving yourselves that Mamelodi Sundowns dominates Bayana team, that’s a lie as the have many foreign based players in Bayana Bayana.

    So can anyone compare Asisat Oshoala, RashidatAjibade, Kanu, Ayinde, Payne sisters, Plumptre to any of these raw Bayelsa players???  All we need is a good coach for SF to become World beaters but unfortunately NFF cannot afford such coaches

    • Leave them Bros @Dr Banks no be the same people that were saying Dessers is better than Osimhen because he scored a goal against Mexico? where Osimhen did not feature. Nigerians can not differentiate between special talent and normal talent. If Nigerians were debating weather Ighalo should start instead of Osimhen in last Qualifiers and Ghana Games what did you expect from the reasoning above. Nigeria is Nigeria’s biggest problem

      • Nigeria/Nigerians have always been Nigeria’s Biggest problems

      • @Ugo, Osimhen is the best we have no doubt. It’s just so unfortunate that Dessers is going through hard times now which can happen to any striker. 
        Almighty Torres faced it when he got to Chelsea, they are already counting matches for Jesus in Arsenal even Messi faced it in his first few games for PSG. Dessers will get it right but that doesn’t mean he’s better than Osimhen 

    • Leave them, Let them just imagine their Bayelsa Team against USA or Canada and know wats up. 
      The last time I checked, our not so good super falcons played 2-1 and 2-2 against those teams.
      Even the Bayanas chop 4-0 from Brazil talkless of Bayelsa Queens. You can’t buy experience my people. World Cup is different from CAF women League that started yesterday.
