Plumptre Celebrates 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Berth

Super Falcons and Leicester City Women defender, Ashleigh Plumptre, has celebrated Super Falcons’ qualification for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in New Zealand and Australia.

The Super Falcons of Nigeria defeated the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon 1-0 at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca, Morocco on Thursday to qualify for the World Cup and the semi-final of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations (WAFCON).

Rasheedat Ajibade scored the only goal of the game via a header from an Ifeoma Onumonu cross in the 56th minute.

Plumptre celebrated the World Cup berth on her Twitter handle.

“Checking back in for a quick sec to say… WE’RE GOING TO THE WORLD CUP. Peace out for now…semis pending,” Plumptre’s Tweet reads.

Plumptre represented England at U-15, U-17, U-19 and U-23 level.

She was able to switch allegiance to Nigeria due to her paternal grandfather who hails from Lagos.

Plumptre made 25 appearances in all competitions for Leicester City women last season scoring two goals.

She has made five appearances for the Super Falcons of Nigeria.

The Super Falcons have represented Africa at all editions of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The Super Falcons face Morocco in the semi-final of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations (WAFCON) on Monday 18 July at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium Rabat, Morocco.

          I never realized Omo9ja likes good thing. Wow!!!. wonder shall never end. This a guy that Nigeria football history has turned its back upon after he scuttled our inspiration of going to World Cup 2022, couple with Nigeria’s inability to beat Tunisia in round 16 in the recent AFCON in Cameroon all because Omo9ja was ready to fail with “Our Own’. Omo9ja and all his enablers, follow who know road. Be a student of our Learnt, Dr Drey. You will then be fine.

          • Omo9ja 2 years ago

            Ahahahaa lolz. This is why I love you too much @Edoman.

            Who no like better thing?

            But when we are talking about Super Eagles coach, Oga Rohr is far from it.

            Can’t you see coach Waldrum ni?

            If you can’t take a risk as a coach then you are not a goodcoach period.

            Asisat and other top Falcons stars were not available for this this year Wafcon but Nigeria still qualified to the world cup.

            You remember that our former world class coach couldn’t do without Ighalo and Akpeyi and the gaffer didn’t have confidence. Always gotten his tactics wrong and his team couldn’t compete with the best when it was matter most.

            This was the reason why I stopped supporting Oga Rohr.

            I love Oga Rohr more than most of you people called “Oga Rohr followers”.

            “Omo9ja and all his enablers, follow who know road. Be a student of our Learnt, Dr Drey. You will then be fine”.

            Niboni motunwajasi bayi leni Friday evening lolz.

            So, Dr.Drey know road? If he does then why we haven’t heard from him after Bayana Bayana vs Super Falcons match?

            He was celebrating here and there because I’m supporting coach Waldrum but now that coach Waldrum is doing well, where is Mr. Dr.Drey.

            I love Dr.Drey though and I promise to love him more if he is ready to humble himself.

            It is your choice if you follow Dr.Drey, I hope you won’t miss road in the end lolz ahahaha. It

            is well. I love you all my lovely people. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Nothing gladdens the hearts of men like talk of beautiful babes. Carry on fellas!

  • That’s a good one… Though I understand why coach is playing her in unfamiliar role, I still believe she can perform better as a CB.

    By the way, here is what I think of Osimhen’s omission from CAF Award

    • Lord AMO 2 years ago

      Good writeup.  Never even thought about Aribo but good points made. There are so many things done on the continent that continue to raise eyebrows.  The top of the list is the stupid zonal qualification system used to qualify for the youth and women’s afcons and world cups.

      Sports is a meritocracy not turn by turn!

  • Lord Amo, let me tell you how the “Zonal qualification” will potentially look like in Europe.

    Only 1 team qualifies for the Euros from each group.

    Spain, Portugal, Italy (West A)

    France, England, Germany (West B)

    Malta, Cyprus, Macedonia (South A)

    Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia (East A).

    The implication is that, no matter how poor teams in South A and East A are, one of them WILL ALWAYS qualify for the Euros at the expense of stronger teams in West A and B who will always lose slots automatically due to the zoning formula rather than their comparative strength.

    Absolute criminal behaviour from CAF!!!!

    • Ghana and Ivory Coast will definitely have made it to the quarter final of the current women’s Afcon but the Zonal system saw Botswana and Tunisia take their places.

      Deprive West Africa to pave way for teams from the North and South of Africa…..


      Criminal behaviour from CAF.

    It started from Ahmad Ahmad….The Malagasy former CAF President

  • Football fan 2 years ago

    Now that Ashleigh has many guys’ attention with some hoping to either marry or plumpt her, l have a vital team comment to make. If you watch Nigerian forwards, they often miss goal scoring chances by blasting over the bar. To be honest, there is no excuse for doing that, unless you’re under super extreme pressure situation, with a defender literally all over you skin to skin. All you have to do not to blast over the bar, is to remember to aim at the grass, the same way you remember to shoot either to the keeper’s left or right. Once you aim at the grass, even if you miss the grass, the highest that ball will go will be waist or shoulder level but never over the bar. l’m a football player, so, l know what l’m talking about. If you doubt me, try it when you play-pick up or Works Cup. Why then are Nigerian players not doing that? Watch the legendary Barcelona Xavi-lniesta era highlight videos, you’ll see that it’s one of the high probability scoring secrets they use to maximize their scoring chance. Please, can any friend, family, relative or official who has access to any of the players pass on this idea to them? Thanks!
