    France 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup: A marker for greater things!

    The curtains have been drawn on this year’s edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, and the event in France saw numerous gains achieved in Women’s football on a global level. In the spirit of advocacy, I launched the Slay-Ballers campaign to bring more awareness to women playing soccer particularly in the face of an ever-widening gender gap when compared to the men’s game. France 2019 saw a clear upgrade in the hitherto low standard of women’s football. The quality of soccer on display by the ladies this summer in France has been remarkably high, so much that many people have forgotten that two big regional men’s events (the AFCON…

    THE SLAYBALLERS 2019 -FIFA WOMEN’S WORLD CUP 2019 – SWEDEN VS NETHERLANDS

        Netherlands vs. Sweden I would say the match between USA and England yesterday has been one of the most thrilling and dramatic matches I have watched since the beginning of this tournament. From a brilliant header from USA’s Press then an equalizer by Ellen White to Alex Morgan scoring her 6th goal of the tournament on her birthday. We later saw a very dramatic second half as the decision of VAR was very critical. It was indeed intense. From VAR confirming an offside goal by Ellen White for the English team and the controversial penalty that was given but missed and finally to the red card given to…

    THE SLAY BALLERS 2019 – FIFA WOMEN’S WORLD CUP 2019 – ITALY VS NETHERLANDS

    Italy vs. Netherlands Today is the last match day of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup and there are two interesting matches billed for today in two all-European showdowns. First, Italy take on European champions Netherland and thereafter, tournament favorites, Germany take on Sweden. Our feature match is Italy vs. Netherlands where both teams will be seeking their first semi-final appearance of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Italy’s impressive campaign at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, their first in two decades, continued as they made relatively light work of China in their last 16 clash to ensure a clash with the Netherlands in the quarter-finals after narrowly topping their…

    THE SLAY – BALLERS 2019 -FIFA WOMEN’S WORLD CUP 2019 – SPAIN VS. USA

    The FIFA 2019 Women’s World Cup’s knockout stage continues on tomorrow with Spain taking on the United States in one of the most anticipated round-of-16 showdown, with France or Brazil awaiting the winner in the quarter finals. Spain, playing in their first ever knock-out game in the competition having only made their debut four years ago are a team on the rise and they should provide a far more sterner test of this USWNT’s bid to retain the world title. The USWNT will still be heavily favored to defeat Spain in the last-16 game at Stade Auguste-Delaune in Reims though, despite Spain’s growth in the game since the last time…

    THE SLAY BALLERS 2019 -FIFA WOMEN’S WORLD CUP 2019- NIGERIA VS SOUTH KOREA

    Nigeria vs. Korea Republic Nigeria and South Korea will be the first teams to play their second games at the 2019 Women’s World Cup when they meet on Wednesday in Group A play. Both teams will be looking to bounce back after heavy defeats in their respective group openers although Korea remain slight favorites. Neither of them is likely to finish among the top two in the group and that makes this encounter a must win for both sides to stand a chance to reach the second round as one of the third-placed teams. Both teams are yet to register any goal yet in the competition and are going to…
