    Tough luck, but we sha needed a physical player who’s more comfortable with the weather and can match the speed of the Banyana since all their girls play domestically

  • If I get this report correctly, only Rasheedat and Oluehi (who may not even play) plus the replacement Alani are in camp. That’s 3 players and I know a coach won’t do anything with even 7 players in camp.

    Meanwhile, SA has a full camp and held their first training session after the 1 week+ training in their country.

    Nigeria 3 players.
    SA full squad of 24 players.

    In Abuja, Nigeria?

    Pheeeewww! Speechless!

    Am I missing something? Did I read wrong? So NFF is honestly handicapped to do better than this?

      South Africa have majority local professionals,i’m hoping we have a full house for tomorrow’s evening training.
      Meanwhile,Ashley Plumptre is a huge lose,a key member of the team!Her class and expereience will be surely missed.

    • Nff can not change Fifa rule for players release by their clubs,by tomorrow the camp will buble except Oshoala.Dont worry our girls are warriors they will fight for their Olympics ticket.

    • You complain a lot bro. Chill .

  • Before every tournament or important qualifiers Nigeria always have devastating team handicapping Injuries is this a curse. W3ll we will never know until we start doing things right.
