CAF can do whatever they like. Tochukwu is the star of the Tournament.

What's Ghana winning? Best Airport in West Africa also deserves a trophy

Watch, they will give it to other people.

Disappointing that Odega got it. I thought the keeper shoukd have gotten it.

I thought the same thing.

I will defend these ladies ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT! After these ladies won the 2016 AWCON, against the odds in a tough final against host Cameroon following the usual shoddy ill-preparation, instead of a victory parade they had to actually go on a PROTEST march through the streets of Abuja just to get their agreed-upon camp and match allowances (btw, noticed your ABSENCE for the protest).

Throughout the 2017 calendar year, the Falcons did not play a single game - as in, ZERO, zilch (also noticed your ABSENCE during said period), and in the 2018 calendar year played a grand total of 1 friendly against France (for which the players were hurriedly assembled). Then, about 2 weeks to this AWCON, the full squad was assembled and played a grand total of ZERO friendlies (again, your ABSENCE while the concerns reigned on these pages was conspicuous)!

Now, after 2 weeks of camping in TWO YEARS (while SA was playing friendlies all around the world in Sweden, Cyprus, Turkey, COSAFA, etc, since early-2017), the so-called “progress” hunters amongst us sit their fat behinds in front of the comfort of their PCs and wonder how many passes the Falcons are able to string together. Dude, whatever happens tonight, I AM FORKING PROUD OF THESE “SLOPPY” LADIES! If only the self-anointed “progress” hunters do half as much for Nigeria... :wink:


Well said Gotti. Much respect
This NFF non-investment and obvious lack of interest in female football shall eventually nullify the progress Nigeria had made in the sport from the past years.
Simply hiring an European manager while neglecting to invest in the players and expecting all to be well is not the way to go

Phew I dodged a bullet there, I didnt know if I could face up to my colleagues on Monday who have been talking up the Banyana Banyana since they sucker punched us over a week ago
Order has been restored

But....the preparation for this tournament hasn't been great, hopefully we can do some work ahead of the world cup where our task will be of Lilliputian proportions

Congratulations to the ladies. NFF will see this as a reason to continue their non-support. Afterall they won it with minimal help.

Mercy akide should take over this team. Pinnic needs to understand that oyibo is not always the answer, this coach has messed up this team, we need younger players


You do not even follow women's football by mentioning Akide.
Did you not know that women coached them to win the previous cup.

This game was no doubt a quality game. The south Africans provided a well deserved stiff opposition that the falcons have been needing. Im kind of glad they got stretched that hard and for the first time we are actually able to see that these girls can ball. had we scored the penalty oshola missed the game would have been stalled to Nigeria sitting back to defend. This is good for women Foosball in Africa

I think we should retain the coach so the exiled Lesbians could come back to the team if for anything else. That Nigerian coach sacked all the lesbians who made our team invincible. :taunt:

We said it the day after the appointment; those of us who knew him over many years ago.
