There is a saying that “when one makes one profession a hobby/passion, work becomes easier”. Such is the case with Victory Queens Football Academy’s Captain, Emmanuel Blessing. Passion and natural love for the round leather game endeared her to football. She shared this in an exclusive interview with kick442.com stating that she was born with football in her.
“I have played for a team called Kotun Babes before joining Victory Queens. The coach of Kotun Babes Soccer Academy noticed me when I was playing street football with my junior ones and friends. He asked me to join his team and I started there. I played the Principal’s Cup for my school before joining Victory Queens. Football came naturally to me. I would say I was born with it in me. I only had to nurture it for it to grow better in me.”
The captain of Victory Queens Football Academy, an Academy based in Ikorodu, Lagos, Nigeria, also speaks on how she relates with teammates as captain.
“I am close to everyone because of my position as the captain, so I share the love equally with everyone. I support Delta Queens and Abia Angels in the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership and in the future will want to play professional football outside Nigeria.” She concluded.
