Ethiopia will Face Different Super Falcons in Abuja – Oluehi


Super Falcons goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi has defended the team’s 1-1 draw in the fist leg of their Olympic Games qualifier against Ethiopia.

Oluehi insisted that the team had little to no preparation to have been able to get the most from the match.

The goalkeeper argued that Women football in Africa had transcended what it used to be, when teams could confidently go into games expecting to win by big margins.

“I want to clear something, football has changed a lot, and teams can no longer beat their chest and say they’ll defeat opponents 4-0, 5-0, 6-0,” she told FL.

Speaking about the team’s form heading into Tuesday’s game, the Super Eagles goalkeeper insists the team is confident of a better performance than they had in Addis Ababa.

“For me, it’s been long we played Ethiopia. Yeah, not long we came back from the World Cup. Yeah, we know we are in a good shape and all that, but you know what, like, how the team went.

“It wasn’t the particular time that we are supposed to arrive in camp.”

“Some people arrived the same day before the game, so there was not much preparation.

“For me, I would give kudos to my girls for coming out and picking a draw. It was not an easy game. It’s been long since we regrouped after the World Cup.

“They really did well, but I believe the second leg would be better than the first leg.”
