Josephine Chukwunonye, Courtney Dike, Iniabasi Umotong, Halimatu Ayinde, Sarah Michael, etc........ Are some of the names missing from Omagbemi's list of invited 30.

Nwabuoku sure of AWCON success
Super Falcons skipper Evelyn Nwabuoku says that her team will go all out to retain the Africa
Women’s Cup of Nations trophy when the
competition kicks off in Cameroon next month.
Nigeria, hosts Cameroon and six other countries
will do battle for Africa’s crown in women's
football from 19 November to 3 December in the
cities of Yaoundé and Limbe.
The Super Falcons are the defending champions of the competition, having won it in 2014, defeating Cameroon 2-0 in the final.
Nwabuoku, who now plays for French side En
Avant de Guingamp, says that the team are
determined to retain the crown to make up for
the disappointment of missing out on Rio 2016.
“We have been talking to ourselves and we have vowed to make our fans happy and make up for the disappointment of not qualifying for the Olympic Games,” Nwabuoku told supersport.com.
“The team has started preparations already and
we (foreign-based players) will soon join the rest
of the squad for training ahead of the
“I must tell you that we are focused on one thing and one thing alone. We want to win the trophy, we want to make our fans happy.
“Above all, we want to win for our coaches and
make them proud of us.”
Nigeria are drawn in group B of the tournament
alongside Mali, Ghana and Kenya.

Ahead of Cameroun 2016 CAF AWCON
Banyana wallop Egypt in friendly
Mamello Makhabane © Gallo Images
Banyana Banyana beat Egypt 3-1 in an entertaining friendly international match played
at Dobsonville on Saturday afternoon.
Goals from Mamello Makhabane, Refiloe Jane and substitute Shiwe Nogwanya ensured coach
Desiree Ellis began her coaching tenure with an
Yet, with good finishing Banyana Banyana could
easily have routed their North African opponents
as they spent most of the afternoon camped in
Egypt’s half but had a solitary goal to show for
their effort in the first opening 45 minutes.
But signs that this Banyana Banyana side has the potential to do well at the CAF Women's Afcon championships in Cameroon that begin next month, are there for all to see.
Andisiwe Mcgoyi could have given Banyana
Banyana an ideal start in the opening minutes
but she fluffed an open chance after a cross from the left.
However, Banyana Banyana were finally rewarded in the 30th minute when Makhabane slotted home a penalty after an Egyptian defender had committed a foul in the box.
But Banyana’s joy were short-lived moments after the break when Noha Tarek fired home a low shot that gave Andile Dlamini no chance in the very first minute of the second half.
That goal gave Ellis’s charges a wake-up call and they again rallied forward in numbers but failed to convert several chances that came their way.
But the industrious Jane was never going to be
denied her moment of joy when she made a maze run through a number of Egyptian defenders before slotting home.
It was a brilliant solo goal that lit up Dobsonville
stadium and Egypt were to be on the back foot
for the rest of the game.
Moments after her goal, Jane tried an audacious
shot from outside the box, but her attempt hit
the crossbar with the Egyptian goalkeeper Maha
El Demerdash stranded.
Subsitute Shiwe Nogwanya then made it 3-1 for
Banyana Banyana with almost the very last kick of the match as the hosts romped home 3-1.

AWCON: Omagbemi recalls Onome to
Super Falcons coach, Florence Omagbemi has
recalled experienced defender, Onome Ebi back
to the team after she was dropped from the list of players pencilled down for the Africa Women Cup of Nations starting next month in Cameroon.
It was gathered that it was the Nigeria Football
Federation, NFF bothered by lack of funds, that
trimmed the list of foreign-based players to be
invited for the tournament. However, there was a rethink after it dawned on the NFF that Nigeria
cannot afford to fail in Cameroon.
“It is good Onome is back; she is one of our best
legs. We cannot afford to go to Cameroon with
inexperienced players. We are aiming to win the
tournament and the NFF must give us all the
support we need to pull off the feat,” said one of
the team players yesterday.
The Falcons have opened camp in Abuja with the home-based players. The foreign-based players like captain Evelyn Nwanbuoku, Desire
Oparanozie, Ebere Orji, Francisca Odega and
Onome are expected to join the group two weeks to the tournament.
The Falcons won the 2014 tournament in Namibia without losing a match. They beat Cameroon 2-0 in the final.
Nigeria is expected to face tough competition
from Ghana, Mali and Kenya in group B of the

I see a motivated Super Falcons brushing aside their opponents enroute to an African "La Decima".
However, the NFF needs to organize 2 or 3 annual friendliest for the team against the top 10 nations in female football.
Moreover, the NFF should strive to ensure that the SF get to participate in the annual Algarve Cup.
Participation in that tourney and regular friendlies against the top FIFA-ranked nations will only help improve the team's tactical and technical skills.

FANS BLAST OMAGBEMI OVER OGECHI IBE'S
Football followers have expressed their discontent at the Super Falcons trainer over the invitation of the American born defender after watching her in training in Abuja.
Football Fans in Abuja have blasted Nigeria’s
senior women coach Florence Omagbemi over the ‘undeserving’ national team call-up handed to US born defender Ogechi Ibe.
Irritated fans who watched Ibe questioned the
rationale behind her invitation seeing her poor
show in training at the Fifa Goal Project pitch in
Abuja on Wednesday.
Joshua Adebayo, a spectator, told Goal: “How on earth can a rusty and poor player get invited to the Super Falcons? She is not deserving of this call-up at all.
“Her presence for me is a huge distraction. I don’t think Omagbemi knows what she is doing. She is just not fit for the national team. I’m
Another fan, Samson Ameh blasted the Nigeria
Football Federation for permitting the invitation of such player stressing that Ibe has nothing to offer the national team.
“I really don’t know what she is doing here. The
NFF must take action on this. She cannot even
control the ball, heavy and lacks idea.
“I fear for the future of Nigeria football if awful
players like this continue to get called up in the
name of coming from American at the expense of better one in our leagues.”
When asked about Ibe’s call-up, Omagbemi
declined commenting, insisting her focus on
getting the team ready for Cameroon but assured only the best will make the final squad.
“I do not wish to comment on her for now.
Because we have limited time to prepare for the
tournament and my focus right now is to get the team ready," she told Goal.
“What I can assure Nigerians is that I and my
coaching crew are focused on getting the team
well prepared and promise to take the best to

Swedish-Based Stars Chikwelu, Okobi & Ikidi Happy To Represent Nigeria At AWCON
Three Swedish-based Nigerian stars, who play in the top league Damallsvenskan, are set to represent the Super Falcons at the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon next month.
They include Faith Ikidi (Piteå), Rita Chikwelu (Umeå IK) and Ngozi Sonia Okobi (Vittsjo), and the trio expressed their happiness at being called to the national team.
Rita Chikwelu was out in the international wilderness until she was invited to the Super Falcons squad that tackled Senegal in April.
“I’m very happy to have the opportunity to play with the Super Falcons again. It is a great honor for me. For various reasons I have not had the chance to play in the National Team since 2012 in the Nations Cup, except for two qualifying matches against Senegal in April.
“We will have a good team traveling to Cameroon, I know our coaches will prepare the team and the players in the best way for the tournament.
“We professionals abroad have been playing a long season and we are all in great shape,” Chikwelu told allnigeriasoccer.com.
She added : “Faith Ikidi has as usual had a very good season in Piteå as a central defender, Okobi has trained hard and played many good matches.
“I believe in our team and it’s a good mix of players from Nigeria and professionals. ”
In Sweden, the Nigerian players in Damallsvenskan are: Faith ikidi (Piteå), Rita Chikwelu (Umeå IK), Sonia Okobi (Vittsjö), Josephine Chukwunonye (Vittsjo), Ogonna Chukwudi (Orebro) and Sarah Michael (Orebro).
All the players are important for their teams and Nigerians should all be proud of them.
Rita Chikwelu had again a very good season. Her team Umea has been hit by injuries but Rita has carried the team on her shoulders. She has been one of the best midfielders in Damallsvenskan this year.
Faith Ikidi was voted Defensive Player of the Year 2015 in Sweden, a prize that she could have had even several times before. She has caught the eyes of many in her games and is a role model for many Swedish footballers.
Okobi has worked hard in the midfield in a new tough league. Her physical status has never been better and her great technical skills are improving.

Nigeria: AWC Title Won't Elude Nigeria,
Super Falcons coach, Florence Omagbemi, has
promised that the team would do everything
possible to retain the African Women Championship (AWC) title in Cameroun.
For the first time since the AWC started in 1998, the Issa Hayatou country is playing host to the championship, which Nigeria had hosted on three occasions, 1998, 2002 and 2006.
The Falcons have won the title seven times (nine times overall), including their triumph in Namibia two years ago.
The US-based Omagbemi, who captained the
Super Falcons for 14 years, winning the title on
five occasions (1991, 1995, 1998, 2000, 2002), told The Guardian that she would use Cameroon 2016 to announce her arrival as head coach.
She said that all invited home-based players
currently battling for shirts in the Abuja camp
have shown signs of determination, adding that
her squad for the championship is gradually
Omagbemi revealed that she was in constant
touch with all the invited professional players,
saying: "I speak with them on daily basis and
they are eager to join us as quickly as possible."
She waved aside media reports that the players
were threatening to boycott the AWC Championship in Cameroun over the inability of
the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to settle
their allowances for the qualifier against Senegal.
"Someone told me about the report but there is
nothing of such in our camp. I am sure some
people just want to distract us but we will not
allow that," Omagbemi said.
Meanwhile, all invited foreign-based players have been given up till November 7 to report to camp in Abuja or forget the championship.
Omagbemi is taking charge of the team alongside former goalkeeper, Ann Chiejine and ex-captain, Perpetua Nkwocha.
The 2016 AWC will run from November 19 to
December 3, with the Super Falcons pitched
against their arch-rivals, the Black Queens of
Ghana, in Group B, which also has Kenya and
The hosts, Lionesses of Cameroun, are in Group A with South Africa, Zimbabwe and Egypt.
