Super Falcons goalkeeper, Tochukwu Oluehi says it is a great joy for her to play and also enjoy a winning debut for her Spanish Reto Iberdorla side, CD Pozoalbense.
Oluehi made her competitive debut for CD Pozoalbense in their Reto Iberdorla 1-2 away win over Malaga CF on Sunday.
“It was a great joy for me winning my first match. I feel so happy about it and looking forward to our next games as we continue to work towards gaining promotion to the top flight.” She told www.kick442.com from her base in Spain.
After beating Juan Grande in the previous match week (3-1), CD Pozoalbense Manager, Manuel Fernández gave entry to Karla Riley to replace Victoria Arévalo and Tochukwu Oluehi, who made her debut in the competition, replacing Ana de Murga in goal.
Malaga took the lead very early in the course of the game. María Ruiz, after nine minutes of play, beat the Nigerian goalkeeper.
Four minutes later, María Marín, from a counter, leveled the score again. Before reaching the break again, María Ruiz put the Cordoba team in trouble, but her header narrowly missed the target.
The second half could not have started better for Manuel Fernández. After a warning from Natalia Montilla, María Marín was brought down in the Malacitan area. The referee did not hesitate and whistled for a penalty, which was converted by Karla Riley.
The result meant CD Pozoalbense go to the top of the Sub Group A Southern League Reto Iberdorla table with 12 points, two points ahead of Granada.
Granada has an outstanding game with Cerceres.
Tochukwu Oluehi joined CD Pozoalbense from 2018-2019 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership Champions, Rivers Angels alongside Evelyn Nwabuoku ahead of the 2020-2021 Reto Iberdorla season.
