A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to reveal that Super Falcons player Rita Chikwelu was his classmate in primary school and she handed him a beating he has not forgotten till today.
The user identified as @emybuddy shared the photo of the player on his handle and said he is not surprised she ended up a footballer.
This is Chekwube na, the girl that beat me in primary school. I can never forget. #NORNGA

Nigerians have however chosen to mock him that he was beaten by a girl and still had the courage to post it on social media.
Some even mentioned that she would come and beat him the second time when she comes across the tweet.

Imagine if this was the other way round.. Someone’s career would have ended.

The Super Falcon however lost 3-0 to Norway, in their first Group A match, at the ongoing 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Saturday night.
The Nigerian team conceded all three goals in the first half.
Guro Reiten, Lisa-Marie Utland and an Ohale own goal gave the Scandinavian team a huge advantage going into the break.
There were no goals in the second half, even though Thomas Dennerby’s ladies were markedly better.
Nigeria will face Korea Republic in their next game on June 12, knowing that another defeat will result in early elimination from the tournament.
