Not much known about the death of Florence’s dad and she could not be reached for further comments at the time of this report.

On Saturday, December, she became the first woman to win the AWCON as a player and a coach.

 

Florence won the AWCON on four occasions in 1998, 2000, 2002 and 2000.

Some reports say she is the second woman to win the AWCON title as coach and player after Eucharia Uche but the former won the title when it was played as a FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers format, not the tourney proper.

As a coach, Uche won the title with the Super Falcons in 2010
