Ann Chiejine



A veteran of three World Cups, Ann Chiejine was one of the most experienced players in international female football.

Chiejine made the Super Falcons' goalkeeping position her sole preserve befoe retiring from international football in 2005.

After a successful coaching course at the National Institute for Sports, Lagos, in 2005, Chiejine was drafted into the technical crew of the Super Falcons. But now, the 35-year-old veteran of three FIFA Women's World Cup tournaments trains aspiring footballers at her football (Ann Chiejine) academy situated in Ajah, a suburb of Lagos.

The Lagos-born Chiejine is on the verge of temporarily making history as the first African to manage a national team in Europe after she was offered the coaching position of the Romanian women's national side.
