New Super Falcons captain Ebi hints at retirement, calls Australia-New Zealand 2023 ‘my last World Cup’

Whereas talking in a video interview with the Super Falcons media crew, Ebi described Australia and New Zealand’s co-hosted event, as “my last World Cup.”

“By the grace of God if I make my last World Cup, I am saying my last World Cup as a result of I do not know what God would do, however in my last World Cup we’d go first, second, third and I belief my women.”

“If now we have extra of this type of friendlies, I consider there’s nothing God can not do and I consider in God because I am a Christian. We are able to win the World Cup, first, second, third, give it to us. I am aiming towards that.

“I wish to thank the NFF for their assist all by way of our invitational tournaments proper from Turkey to the US, and plenty of others and now, Canada,” Ebi stated within the video revealed on the Super Falcons Twitter deal with.

Oshoala who had been the staff’s captain since 2019, was stripped of it just before the tour in Canada after the NFF and coach Randy Waldrum, claimed that it was taking a toll on her.
