Super Falcons captain, Onome Ebi entered the history books as the first African player (male or female) to play in six World FIFA Cups after stepping onto the pitch in the side’s 0-0 draw against the Republic of Ireland on Monday afternoon.

The defender was also part of the team at the 2008 Olympic Games, in Beijing.

The Super Falcons sealed a place in the Round of 16 following the stalemate.

Randy Waldrum’s side will face the first-place team in Group D in the Round of 16.
