    As long as Oshoala is not making any meaningful impact in Superfalcons she will find it difficult to win the Balloon. That’s the simple truth. The National team is an important platform players use to project and position for world awards

    • And Benzema did that with France? Of course not but did it as a Real Madrid player. However winning depends on the coaches and captains who voted. After all when Weah won in 1995, it was due to his exploits with AC Milan and not Liberia.

    WE are not SAYING she should have WON it..

    What WE are SAYING is the 16 SHE was placed is too FAR OFF…

    At least 10 should have been OKAY…

    That is when you MINUS all the “SUPER FALCONS with no IMPACT” that you mentioned…

    Funny enough, The lady that won was her team mate.

    Is there anything special she does that Oshoala can not do.

    I think they use the National team more to evaluate.

    16th is too far. she supposed to 2nd or 3rd
