Gloria Ofoegbu still down with knee injury

08 July 2015, 11:10

Lagos – Defender Gloria Ofoegbu is yet to recover from a knee injury she sustained when she represented the country at the 2014 African Women's Championship in Namibia, News24 can authoritatively confirm.

The left-back wasn't considered for the Super Falcons World Cup preparation due to the setback that is reportedly a career threatening one.

Fans shouldn't have forgotten the wonderful exploits of the young lady who was an important member of the Falconets teams to the 2010 and 2012 FIFA U20 World Cup respectively.

The highlights of her career was the brace she bagged in the 2013 Federation Cup final for Rivers Angels against Nasarawa Amazons and the brilliant free-kick she netted in the 2014 AWC Group game against Namibia.

According to what News24 gathered, the cost of the surgical operation for the former Nasarawa Amazons star is very expensive.

The overlapping defender needs the support of the Nigeria Football Federation and well-meaning Nigerians.
