Super Falcons Forward Ordega Reveals Why She’ll Not Play for Nigeria Again after Missing Tokyo 2020


Super Falcons winger Francisca Ordega has hinted that could retire from football before the next Olympic Games in 2024.

Ordega was in action when the Falcons lost to Ivory Coast in the qualifiers for the 2020 Olympic Games back in October and the former Rivers Angels’ attacker said it’s another opportunity missed, by her, to be an Olympian.


“I was in the team that missed 2012, 2016 and now the 2020 Olympic Games. I played with pain against Cote d’ Ivoire with the hope of helping my team qualify but we were unlucky to draw that game and crashed out.


“It is a regret I doubt if I will be able to make up for before retirement. I will be 31 years of age by the time the next Olympic comes around in 2024.”


Ordega however doubts if she will be around for the next Olympic games, as he she needs to have family of her own.


“I don’t think my husband will allow me to continue playing instead of making babies. Anyway, I will try to remain fit to achieve my Olympic Games dream,” She said.
