What Does England Born Rinsola Babajide Bring To the Super Falcons' Table?

One player that caught my eye in the list is striker Rinsola Babajide. I am oblivious to the fact that she was even considering switching to Nigeria let alone going through the notoriously lengthy nationality switch process.

I hope this is not an administrator blunder as Rinsola will be a top notch addition to further add firepower to the Super Falcons attack.

The now 25 year old forward England Youth International gained notoriety after netting 14 goals for the University of East London women’s football team in their 40-0 bashing of the University College, London in 2016.

In August 2018, the former Liverpool, Brighton and Watford sharpshooter was part of the England U20s squad that claimed bronze at the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. In September 2020 she was included in a training camp for the England senior team but was unable to force her way into team selection.

The gifted centre forward, who is known for harassing defenders to give up possession with her physicality, is a masterful goal scorer blessed with pace and technically grounded in her craft.

If it is true that she has surreptitiously switched allegiance to Nigeria, it will add another feather to quality-cap of the Super Falcons.
