“We opened this camp with over 30 players, and with other two coaches, we have been screening both the listed players and those who came on their own. I can assure you that we will pick players who would do the country proud by beating their Guineanian counterparts over two legged encounters,” Olowokere stated.

“We are hoping to play some friendly games with some women teams or practice games with some boys clubs to know our readiness for the match.”

    How on earth can you appoint 3 assistant coaches and leave appointment of the head coach pending…with the qualifiers just a few weeks away?

    What if the quality of players select does not match the quality of players that fits into the eventual head coach’s style or philosophy…? What of that one resumes and agents and top officials start pressuring him to drop some of the selected players for their own candidates..?

    Is it not the same process that produced 3 assistant coaches that should have produced a head coach…?

    Guinea has already played in the previous round of the qualifiers and ready have a team…but we don’t even have a coach yet and we are still screening players with a few weeks to the game. I guess NFF are relying on the individual brilliance and sheer number raw talents we have in female football. It’s like our Olympics outster by CIV hasn’t taught us any lessons.

    This may be Nig Vs Togo CHAN experience playing itself over and over again
