      Yes Mr E Samuels. It is positive news.

       
  • Congrats. That’s how a good coach speaks and organizes his players for a battle. Not someone who keeps saying “my young team” and has been with the team for over four years.

    Congratulations to Super Falcons. I am very happy for you ladies.

    Congratulations to the new coach Waldrum. Is not easy for a new coach in charge of a new team to win his first game because he is very new to the team and still, he managed to win his first match in his first tournament. Good job.

    I noticed one thing about him, he didn’t rely too much on regular players. Way to go coach. God bless Nigeria!!!

      Asisat Oshoala, Halimatu Ayinde, Ohale Osinachi, Rita Chiikwelu, Onome Ebi, and Francisca Ordega, Tochukwu Oluehi, Glory Ogbonna, Chidinma okeke, Chinwendu Ihezuo all started the match against a clubside and you claim he didnt rely on regular players. If these ones are not regulars we wonder who else is a regular. Do you even read what you write before pasting them at all.

    O yea! He didnt rely too much on regulars? Asisat Oshoala, Halimatu Ayinde, Ohale Osinachi, Rita Chiikwelu, Onome Ebi, and Francisca Ordega, Tochukwu Oluehi, Glory Ogbonna, Chidinma okeke, Chinwendu Ihezuo all started the match against a clubside and you claim he didnt rely on regular players. Does it get more regular than these ones…? Do you even read what you write before pasting them at all. You are just being hypocritical.
