Lagos - Super Falcons defender, Osinachi Ohale has signed a
professional contract with Houston Dash FC, a club in the National women's
soccer league in the USA.
The former Delta Queens defender told Super Falcons Media
Officer Gracious Akujobi that she is happy to be playing in a league as strong
as the NWSL.
"Firstly, I thank God for His grace and favour because
playing in the NWSL was the least thing I expected this year but the offer came
on a platter of gold."
Ohale has already opened her league account as she took part
in her club's first league match of the season which they lost to league
defending champions Portland Thorns.
She however likes the standard of the league as it will help
her improve her game and confidence.
The defender will not reveal the details of her contract but
said it is a good one with good salary to go with it, adding that the environment
is favorable to her with good reception from teammates.
When asked if she will honour her invitation to Super
Falcons camp now, she replied and said "I can't come to camp now because
our league just started this April, but I will be with the team for the African
women championship because our league ends in August."
