“Get your facts right” – Super Falcons star drags journalist for failed prediction

Super Falcons defender Chidinma Okeke has responded to negative predictions surrounding the team’s chances at the ongoing 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Nigerian international Chidinma Okeke has leapt out in defence of her teammates, shielding them from criticism at the ongoing 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The Super Falcons came into the Mundial with low expectations but have been overperforming so far with a draw against Canada and a surprise 3-2 win against co-hosts Australia.

Okeke, who did not make the Super Falcons World Cup team, immediately went on Tiktok to clap back at the negative but realistic pre-tournament predictions of Nigerian journalist, Tunde Young, who is also the author of this piece for the sake of clarity.

Chidinma Okeke fires back at Tunde Young

The 22-year-old had a lot to say in a lengthy video by TikTok standards on her verified page @iamc.okeke20 where she has 154.2k followers.

Let me give you a simple answer to the rubbish you just said. Bro… even though you wanna condemn us, at least get your facts rights because everything you said are all lies,” Chidinma said.

The 22-year-old continued, “We’re not the best in the world, neither are we the worst in the world and don’t forget we’re the best in Africa. The way you’re condemning us looks like we’re the worst in the world.”

By “we”, Okeke was of course referring to the Super Falcons, whose World Cup squad she was not good enough to make.

After the draw against Canada, I’ve been wanting to make this video, I was just waiting for my girls to make me proud, they should just give me that mouth which they did, we played against the host country which is Australia and we won 3-2,” she continued.

“Stop playing, get your facts right, we’re not that good but we’re trying, we’re getting there,” was the last coherent bit of the emotional rant.
