CHIAMAKA NNADOZIE 8/10

Produced a number of good saves in the thrilling contest. She however couldn’t prevent her side from going out of the competition.

MICHELLE ALOZIE 7/10

The right-back missed from the spot and fluffed a good chance in extra time. Otherwise it was another superb display from the defender.

OSINACHI OHALE 81/0

Solid as ever, the veteran centre-back didn’t put a foot wrong for the entire duration of the game.

TOSIN DEMEHIN 8/10

Demehin recovered from an early mistake to post another superb display for the Super Falcons. She is certainly one for the future.

ASHLEIGH PLUMPTRE 8/10

The former Leicester City defender hit the crossbar in the first half. It’s sad we won’t see her ahain in this competition.

HALIMAT AYINDE 7/10

She made it difficult for England to gain a foothold in midfield. Came off for Jennifer Echegini in extra time.

TONI PAYNE 7/10

Not influential as in previous games but still gave her best. She was replaced by Desire Oparanozie late on.

UCHENNA KANU 7/10

She was lively all through. Unlucky not to get on the score sheet.

RASHEEDAT AJIBADE 71/0

Another player who gave her all in the game. Caused England ‘s defence problem for the entire 120 minutes.

The forward didn’t do much in the game. She was replaced by Asisat Oshoala early in the game.

  • Honestly even me I am SURPRISED and IMPRESSED by their PERFORMANCE…

  • pompei 11 months ago

    I share the blame for this defeat into 2 portions.
    10% is for Waldrum and his team.
    90% is on NFF ONIGBESE.
    The most useless football federation on the planet. It’s not today that we started feeling the brunt of their incompetence. The thing that stands between Nigeria and football excellence is COMPETENT ADMINISTRATION.

      Lack of competent administration, I meant to say. The feelings of sadness reminds me of the second round loss to Italy in the 1994 world cup.
      NFF, thanks a lot!

  • Had it been another country that faced Nigeria, the girls would have won the game. I thought England will beat them silly. Well done girls.

  • Didn’t eat throughout the day. First time since 2018 world cup exit pained me more so after a performance that deserved no loss. Goal ratings for most English players were very low 4/10
