2023 WWC: No Injury Worries  —Super Falcons Media Officer

Super Falcons media officer Oluchi Tobechukwu has allayed the fears of Nigerians over injuries worries after Thursday’s big win against Australia.

The Falcons recorded a shock 3-2 win against the co-hosts in Group B to go top.

However some of the Falcons players suffered various injuries in the encounter.

Also, right-back Michelle Alozie received a knock during the hard fought fixture.

But speaking on Sports Breakfast Show on Brila FM, Tobechukwu said the affected players are fine.

“They are good, a lot of knocks during the match even prior to that we’ve had Desire Oparanozie on the bench recovering from knocks almost fully fit.

“I saw Ohale last night before going to bed she was walking fine so they should be good before our next game.“

Tobechukwu expressed gratitude to Nigerians both at home and in Australia whose support has served as motivation for the Falcons to go out there to do the unthinkable.

She stated that the Falcons’ target now is to finish top in Group B so that they will remain in Brisbane.

  • Please stop saying ‘shock win’ and stop downgrading my country. A win is a win. 

    Assuming we lost to them that could be a shock loss. 


    • You are absolutely correct brother.’Shock win’ as reported here is demeaning and degrading.However, there’s no gainsaying that the Super Falcons are here to have their names etched in the annals of history books and ‘more shock wins’ are on the way.My only advice to the girls is to even up their game against Ireland and record a big win and stay atop of the group so that they can face a relatively weaker team in the round of 16 and remain in Brisbane as well.
