Super Falcons defender and Henan Huishang of China defender Onome Ebi is counting her blessings with panache, after acquiring an eye popping house in Lagos.
The former ZFK Minsk of Belarusia defender took to her Instagram to celebrate the feat submitting”
I just want to say thank you Lord God for all. Dreams do come TRUE if you keep believing in yourself and never give up”
Ebi who has played for six different foreign clubs in Sweden, Turkey and Belarus respectively before joining the Chinese Women’s Super League in 2018, is not the only Falcons interested in acquiring a property in Lagos, recall that Barcelona ladies ace Assisat Oshoala way back in 2018 acquired a multi million naira two-storey building in the Constain Area of Lagos, ending her thanks giving for the feat with “Small girl Big God ��…Alhamdulilah, parent first”.
Ebi who can easily pass for a veteran of the women football in Nigeria and beyond has featured in five Women’s World cup including the last edition last year in France.
Four time winner of the African Women Championship Ebi was among those who expressed disappointment following Super Falcons failure to qualifying for now embattled 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
She had then blamed it on poor preparation coupled with sudden middle of the road departure of former Super Falcons coach and now coach of India U-17 Women side Thomas Dennerby.
Super Falcons failed to qualify for the Olympics for the third consecutive time since their last appearance at Beijing 2008 Olympics in which Ebi incidentally featured.
The former Bayelsa Queens ace however refused to blame Chris Danjuma who took over after the Swede disappeared for the team’s ouster.
“To some extent, I think the resignation of Dennerby affected the team because he had been the coach of the team for a while,” she stated. “All coaches are good in their own way but you can’t blame any coach or say any coach in that situation is not good enough after considering the time he (Danjuma) took over.”
