Super Falcons player, Halimatu Ayinde was named in World best 11 by UK Sun for her remarkable performance in the just concluded Women’s World Cup tournament.
The reputable UK media outlet, The Sun, announced their best 11 of the tournament, featuring a host of top performers throughout the competition.
Super Falcons defensive midfielder, Halimatu Ayinde was one of the names that stood out in the UK Sun’s best 11.
Ayinde was spectacular throughout the tournament, especially in Nigeria’s last-16 clash against England which the Super Falcons lost on penalties.
She did a man-marking job on England and Chelsea star Lauren James, neutralising her efforts at every turn.
James had no impact on the game whatsoever, causing her to lose composure and get sent off in the process.
Some of the other prominent names in the SunSport team of the tournament include Mary Earps, Keira Walsh, and Manchester United’s Ona Batlle.
Spain won the FIFA Women’s World Cup after a spectacular run to the final that saw them defeat England 1-0 to wrap up a thrilling tournament.
