Observations : How Super Falcons Players Performed against Banyana Banyana

Coach Florence Omagbemi saw the impacts of having Ngozi Okobi in the team and she also rewarded Desire Oparanozie with first Start after her Goal against Kenya sealed a decent 4-0 Victory.


 
Both Coaches are Ex-Internationals for their respective countries.
 

Alaba Jonathan : She was Good in Goal only for few nervous moments which can't be ruled out in football.

Faith Ikidi : She was so poor in some one on ones but she made the sublimed run that led to the freekick for the Goal and She also cleared the ball off the line twice late in the Game.Oshoala and Ordega didn't assist her defensively and she was also playing too high sometimes.

Onome Ebi : Made some last ditch Clearance the entire match.

Osinachi Ohale : At her best to cover for Ebi and Ikidi who both lacked Pace.

Ugo Njoku : Worked so hard,Didn't have the best of Connection with Oshoala on the right flank,Nearly scored an Own Goal and was later booked for time wasting.

Halimatu Ayinde : Comfortable with the ball most times but struggled to control the tempo especially in the first half.

Rita Chikwelu : She is having a Good competition but the introduction of Okobi pushed her deep to do some defensive work and She had few misplaced passes that lead to Counter Attacks and she looked so tired later on.

Ngozi Okobi : The best Super Falcon on the pitch,Covered grounds and tried most times to make things happen.Sonia Ngozi will go places.

Francisca Ordega : Was tightly marked by a vibrant defender and she only manage to deliver a Good cross throughout before being replaced.

Asisat Oshoala : Five Goals in the Competition already but will need to add more to her game to reach a great height. Football as a team sport requires teamwork especially in big games.Superzee was nowhere to be found throughout the match as she gave away the ball too much,sometimes trying to dribble three defenders instead of Passing.She was denied yet another glaring penalty by the Referee.

Desire Oparanozie : Made the difference in the end with a Good free kick that had a wicked deflection on its way in.She brought power into the attack against a tough defence.The goalie denied her twice and actually swapped positions with Oshoala and Ordega.

Substitute

Chioma Wogu : Replaced the tired Ordega in the last 10 minutes, defended well and was part of a Counter Attack.

Coach F.Omagbemi : Wasn't able to play any friendly to test her team,Afraid to make substitutions and she didn't tell her players to take South Africa very Serious until 30minutes into the match.Such Lackadaisical Approach against European,Asian or American Oppositions will be disastrous.
