Striker Hembafan Ayatsea has said she is ready to continue learning and playing for the Invisible Angels despite a challenging experience in the early stages of her Nigeria Women Premier League career.
Ayatsea scored two goals in the first round of the NWPL for her hometown club and revealed how hard-fought it has been playing in the elite league.
In a chat to thenwfl.com, “I must confess it has been tough. The NWPL is a competitive league and you just have to be at your best always. I learnt probably more in the Premier League than I probably had in the last two years of my career.
“I am ready to help my team by scoring more important goals as the second round resumes soon. Playing in the NWPL is a wide awakening as I got to play at the Aper-Aku Stadium for the first time and it was a memorable moment scoring in front of my friends and families.
“As a 16 year old, I think the league has been a steep learning curve for me and but I am enjoying the experience and I hope we can end in a very respectable position at the end because in the NWPL, you can’t afford to make as many mistakes as you are playing against the best players in Africa and beyond.”
Invincible Angels came through with the first round at second position, just three points below Confluence Queens who are a notch above Group D. They will go to Uyo on the 28th of August, 2019, where they will tackle Ibom Angels.
