Okobi says move to Elskilstuna will help achieve her dreams


 Super Falcons midfielder Ngozi Okobi, who recently joined Swedish women side, Eskilstuna United, says the club will help achieve her dreams.


Okobi said on Friday that she was hopeful of becoming a better player in her new outfit than her previous Vittjso Giik, also a Swedish club.

Okobi, who spent two seasons in Vittjso where she played 42 times, scoring three goals, moved early in January on a one year contract.

“Eskilstuna is a bigger and better club for me. It is a dream come true and I know it will help achieve my dreams.

“I enjoyed my days in Vittjso, but I hope to become a better player in my new club and help the team to achieve dreams,’’ she said

Okobi made her senior debut for Nigeria in 2010. She was part of the squad that helped Nigeria win the African Women’s Championship in 2010 and 2014.
