Gift Monday Relishes World Cup Debut Against Republic Of Ireland

Gift Monday

Super Falcons striker Gift Monday is relishing her FIFA Women’s World Cup debut against Ireland at the ongoing 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The Super Falcons played out a 0-0 draw with the Republic of Ireland on Monday, July 31 at Lang Park, Brisbane.

Monday was substituted in for star player Asisat Oshoala in the 68th minute.

She almost made an assist in added time as she took on several Irish players before passing the ball to Rasheedat Ajibade who fired a rather tame effort at Ireland goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan.

However the Group B game finished scoreless after 97 minutes with Nigeria qualifying in second place to the round of 16.

Gift Monday took to her personal Twitter handle to express her delight.

“Such a special feeling finally making my senior @FIFAWWC debut. And I’m more delighted we are in the Round of 16. It means everything it’s what dreams are made of. I’m speechless! If this is just a dream never wake me up. Beautiful,” the Tweet reads.

Monday tallied up three goals and three assists in 19 Primera Division games for Granadilla Tenerife last season.
