Super Falcon joins American club

17 April 2014, 18:05Israel Ojoko

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."
