Abia Angels defensive midfielder, Blessing Faith Onyenaucheya says her Club has the capacity and capability of defeating Edo Queens in their Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership week ten tie.
The Umuahia based side ended their five games losing streak by playing out a goalless draw with Delta Queens last week.
Blessing Faith is optimistic that they can get another positive result in Benin.
“I expect my team to defeat Edo Queens because I believe it can happen. Nothing is impossible in the sight of God as we are bouncing back from our previous unimpressive results. Our last game which we played out a draw with Delta Queens will push us to get a good result in Benin.” She told www.kick442.com.
The freestyle footballer who is one of the longest-serving players at Abia Angels differentiates between team football and freestyle football.
She said: “The difference between football and freestyle is; Freestyle is an individual sport while football is teamwork.
“I have been with the team (Abia Angels) right from when it was Standard Babes FC. I was only going for competitions like, Abia state Polytechnic Games, in which we are the champion, the 2013 Airtel Rising Star Championship, and National sports festivals.
Even when we gained promotion to the Nigeria Women Premier League in 2016, I was still with them till now.
“My dream is to play this football in Europe. I see myself playing and representing my country in the European league, playing for Arsenal or Barcelona.”
Abia Angels kicked off the 2021 NWFL Premiership season with a 2-0 win over Pelican Stars before a 1-0 defeat to Royal Queens.
They bounced back with a 2-1 win over DreamStar FC Ladies.
This was followed by five straight defeats in the hands of Rivers Angels, Sunshine Queens, Nasarawa Amazons, Bayelsa Queens, and Confluence Queens.
After forcing Delta Queens to a goalless draw last week to pick their first point after five games, Abia Angels will be on the road away to Edo Queens at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
