Published

The President of the Nigeria Women Football League, Aisha Falode, has applauded all the 14 clubs in the NWFL Premiership for conducting themselves patriotically and professionally as the 2020/2021 season runs into the Super Six challenge and the bottom Eight battle.

The Super Six and Bottom Eight were adopted by the clubs in a Virtual meeting to determine the champion and relegated teams at the end of the season on April 25.

Falode noted that despite the situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, the clubs comported themselves very well as they strictly ensured safety protocols before and after games all through the first round of matches.

She added that: “In the entire 13 weeks of the First Round, there was no crowd violence in any of the 14 venues across the country. This is quite commendable and with situations like these, the women’s league will continue to grow and develop faster.”

The NWFL boss was full of plaudits for the clubs for their patriotism and love for Nigerian football especially at a time when the country could have been left out of the much anticipated CAF Women Champions League. “But the clubs rallied round and called for a meeting where their decisions were put to votes leading to the early conclusion of the season to enable Nigeria present representatives for the CAF Women Champions League. This has been the dream of women’s football players, club owners, the media, and other proponents, for so many years.”

“The result of this is the re-emergence of the Super Six after earlier decision to play a straight league of 132 matches over 26 weeks. The Super Six has been slated for the Dipo Dina International Stadium, Ijebu-Ode from April 19 to 25. Here the champion for the 2020/2021 season will emerge, so also Nigeria’s representatives for the CAF Women Champions League. I wish the six clubs; Bayelsa Queens, Delta Queens, Rivers Angels, Edo Queens, FC Robo, and Sunshine Queens, good luck as they battle for the title and tickets for the CAF Women Champions League.

“I once again congratulates the NWFL Premiership clubs for their patriotism and love for Nigeria Women Football. It’s my prayers that Nigeria will come out triumphant at the end of the inaugural CAF Women Champions League as appreciation for the patriotic gestures shown by the 14 NWFL Premiership clubs,” Aisha Falode, said.

I've been a freelance web developer and blogger for a while now and have a passion for both. Like most men, I'm a football lover; I prefer playing to watching matches.Personally, I believe with dedication there's no limit to what we can achieve. Yes, we all have the power and ability to do that.

The Nigeria national U-17 women’s national team, Flamingos, have successfully arrived in India ahead of the upcoming U-17 FIFA World Women’s Cup that will begin next week.

Flamingos left their camp in Abuja last month on a 10-day camping trip in Turkey, where the team played a doubleheader of unofficial friendly matches against the Fenerbahçe women’s team.

Flamingos defeated Fenerbahçe 3-1 in the first leg of the match but the Turkish giants came back stronger in the reverse fixture to beat the Nigerian ladies by the same scoreline on Wednesday.

“Hello India!

“Our sisters, Flamingos have arrived Goa for #U17WWC after a five-hour stopover in Mumbai, India.

“Players and officials have since settled down at Grand Hyyat Hotel.

UEL: Arsenal defeat Bodø/Glimt 3-0 to move top of group A

UEL: Arsenal defeat Bodø/Glimt 3-0 to move top of group A

Arsenal’s impressive form across all competitions continued Thursday night as the Gunners hammered Norwegian club Bodø/Glimt 3-0 in their Group A match at the Emirates Stadium.

Coming into the game, Arsenal had won eight out of its nine matches across all competitions this season with the only blemish coming in a 3-1 loss to Man United in the Premier League.

The possession was almost equally split in the first half of the intense game but Arsenal were the side able to do the scoring.

Eddie Nketiah put Arsenal 1-0 up in the 23rd minute from a Kieran Tierney ball that struck the bar before Rob Holding doubled the lead for the Gunners with a header.

Although Bodø/Glimt were able to hold and control for a relatively long period in the encounter, they were unable to break the Arsenal’s defensive line.

The first half ended Arsenal 2-0 Bodø/Glimt.

It was also a close game in the second half of the game but the visitors’ efforts not to concede any goal again in the match was futile when Fábio Vieira scored in the 84th minute to see the victory for Arsenal.

With the impressive win on Thursday night, the Gunners move to top of Group A with the maximum six points from two matches and a three goals difference despite having one game in hand.

The game between Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven, who thrashed FC Zuric 5-1 in the other Group A game also on Thursday was postponed last month following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
