The Nigeria Football Federation has congratulated the captain of the Senior Women's National Team, Super Falcons, Rasheedat Ajibade, on her emergence as the Player of the Season for her Spanish top division club, Atlético Madrid Femenino.

The elegant midfielder practically secured qualification for her club to next season’s UEFA Champions League by scoring the only goal that condemned Villarreal Ladies to defeat in the last game of the season. She netted 10 goals and provided eight assists in the just-ended season.

NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, said the football governing body was not surprised, as Ajibade has always been an epitome of discipline, dedication, diligence, and total commitment to both her club and country.

“Rasheedat has always been a role model who exemplifies what you expect of a star performer in any field. She has demonstrated discipline and dedication and has carried the Super Falcons on her shoulders with a sense of patriotism and ambition.

“We congratulate and commend her for this rare honor, and we believe that this achievement will motivate her even further to lead the Super Falcons to glory at the forthcoming Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in France.”

Ajibade was one of the key players as the Super Falcons reached the Round of 16 at last year’s FIFA World Cup finals Down Under, remaining unbeaten in regulation time before exiting after a penalty shootout defeat by England.

She subsequently became team captain and has led the team to qualify for the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament for the first time in 16 years.
