English Women’s Super League Salutes Plumptre, Falcons For 2023 World Cup Qualification

English Barclays Women’s Super League have saluted Ashleigh Plumptre and her Super Falcons teammates for qualifying for next year’s FIFA World Cup.

Plumptre, who plays for Leicester City in the Women’s Super League, returned from injury to help the Falcons secure a ninth World Cup ticket.

Rasheedat Ajibade scored the only goal of the game in the 56th minute after nodding in Ifeoma Onumonu’s cross.

It was the Atletico Madrid star’s third goal of this year’s tournament.

Plumptre will now hope to help the Falcons go past hosts Morocco in the semi-finals on Monday.

And commenting on the Falcons’ World Cup qualification, the organizers of the English women’s top-flight wrote on Twitter:“Ashleigh Plumptre and the Super Falcons have booked their place at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.”

The other semi-final clash will see Banyana Banyana of South Africa take on the Copper Queens of Zambia.

The South Africans edged Tunisia 1-0 in Thursday’s quarter-finals while Zambia overcame Senegal on penalties.

    Yes o!

    PLUMPTRE is the next in line for the FALCONS CAPTAINAINCY!!

    • Why would a player who only joined the Super Falcons a few months ago suddenly become the next in line to Falcons captaincy? Is it because she’s near white- skinned or is it because she has way more experience than several players who have been representing the Falcons close to a decade?

    Ajibade has scored 3 goals so far, one with her left foot, one with her right foot, and one with her head.
    Also, Nigeria has not conceded a goal in the last 3 games. The only 2 goals conceded came in the first game against SA, and both goals came within 2 minutes!!!
    I don’t know what happened in that calamitous two minutes, but after that, our defense seem to have gotten their act together. Let’s hope the “TWO MINUTE COLLAPSE” does not happen again.
