Sarah Ogoke led Nigeria's D'Tigress to a historic run in the 2023 Afrobasket championship while Michelle Alozie was brilliant at the 2023 FIFAWWC.

Nigeria Super Falcons defender Michelle Alozie continues to draw attention after D’Tigress captain Sarak Ogoke demanded her jersey.

Alozie has become more popular following an impressive outing for Nigeria at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, FIFAWWC.

The defender was in superb form as the Super Falcons proved to be worthy challengers in New Zealand and Australia.

Alozie played all the matches as Nigeria navigated a group of death that included co-hosts Australia and Olympic champions Canada unscathed.

However, despite a gallant effort in the round of 16 against England, the Super Falcons went on to lose on penalties to the European champions with Alozie outstanding again.
