Nigerian women football superstar Asisat Oshoala has taken a swipe on the country’s Football Federation for the seeming inactivity of the women’s national team, the Super Falcons.
Oshoala currently plays club football for Chinese side Dalian Quanjian and took to her social media pages (on Instagram and Twitter) to send an instructive message to the Federation concerning the Senior Women’s National team.
The Falcons have been without a coach and have not featured in any game since they won the 2016 African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon last December when Oshoala was the team’s tournament’s top scorer with six goals.
The former Rivers Angels versatile star posted on Tuesday morning:
“Over 8 months without regrouping THIS IS NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE What Is Our Vision? We need an explanation”

She copied the official handle of the Football Federation @thenff and the NFF’s Head of Women’s Football, Ruth David in her post.
Oshoala’s post attracted mixed reactions from her followers many of whom accused her of betraying her teammates when she stayed away from their protest while pressing home demands for payment of their outstanding allowances after last December’s triumph.
Many however supported the FC Robo product by joining her in asking the Federation to stop their seeming neglect of the Women’s football teams.
The Federation was not available to respond to Oshoala’s claim when reached by www.aclsports.com
It will be recalled that the Football Federation while naming coaches for the female Under 17 and 20 teams last week named a shortlist of coaches to be interviewed for the Senior Women team.
