  • Waldrum or whatever the coach of super falcons is called, I desire to see particularly onyenezide in the world cup rooster. Her skill set is a once in a decade stuff.

    • I was also of the view of extending invitations to Oyenedize and Flourish Sebastian.

      But, after watching their output at the just concluded Wafu Under 20 Cup, I think they need to mature a bit more.

        @deo, I don’t know what you were watching but Onyenezide definitely belongs in the Falcons camp (if not the squad itself). Other than perhaps Echegini, Esther is definitely more creative than any player we presently have in the Falcons atm (yes, including the 2023 version of Okobi). Tired of watching the Falcons kick-and-chase the ball under Randy Waldrum, with seemingly little or no ability to comfortably hold onto or distribute the ball (while he continues to shoehorn Rash Ajibade into midfield).

        As for Flourish, what she needs is not necessarily “maturity” but a little more physical growth. Presently she gets pushed off the ball far too easily. Otherwise, she should be backup to Toni Payne in the SFs today!

          Oga Oyenezide is good but her play is still very backward she’s not shows signs of a big player at all, she try to play personal football not team work she has great pass but 99percent she use her personal stylish play to kill her team, put the ball out first time she draws the entire team back to prove I can use my left as well an kill a beautiful Attack, Stylish play again she played a very bad stylish penalty an again killed the hole team for what ?if she drops her stylish play then yes if not hhhhmmm
