Falcons star blames NFF for latest drop in world ranking

Super Falcons drop in the latest FIFA Women’s ranking didn’t come as a surprise at least not to Osinachi Ohale, who attributed the slump to inactivity at the international stage.

Ohale insists Nigeria’s dropping of three places from 36 to 39 globally could have been avoided.

“We dropped because of the negative results we’ve been getting and when we climbed it was because we were doing certain things right,” the 2018 AWCON winner told Lagos-based Brila FM.

“To compete with the biggest teams, we have to keep up with playing quality friendlies and be active internationally just like other countries have been doing.

“Since the World Cup we haven’t played matches besides the Olympic qualifiers,” noted Ohale, who currently plies her trade with Spain’s CD Tacón.

Interestingly, the Falcons defender also found time to applaud SAFA’s efforts to keep improving Banyana Banyana.

Like Nigeria, South Africa missed out on a place at next year’s Olympic Games women’s football event, but the Desire Ellis’s side have been much involved in the international windows in recent time.

“South Africa is playing friendlies and they didn’t qualify for the Olympic Games; they’re doing this to improve. This is how things should be done.”
