NFF mourns former Falconets’ goalkeeper, Bidemi Aluko-Olaseni




The Nigeria Football Federation has described as “very sad” the death at the weekend of former Nigeria U20 Women National Team goalkeeper, Bidemi Aluko-Olaseni.


Aluko-Olaseni, who had been battling with cancer for about eight years, gave up the battle on Friday evening.


“We are very sad to hear of the demise of Bidemi Aluko-Olaseni. It is disheartening to hear of the passing of such a young woman. She had been ill for some years now but we were hoping and praying she would recover and still be able to pursue her passion and dream.


“The NFF and the Nigeria Football family are grieved by her death. However, we are happy that she took her passion and dream to a certain level. Our prayer is that God grants her eternal rest and also grant those she has left behind the fortitude to bear the loss,” NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi said on Monday.


The former goalkeeper featured for several prominent clubs in the country, among them Sunshine Queens, Ekiti Babes and Rivers Angels.
