Super Falcons player, Francisca Ordega has revealed that she once slapped her ex-boyfriend for staring at another woman while they were together.
The player who is part of the Nigerian women team at the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup in France made this revelation in an interview with Kelvin Ekerete.
“Off the field, my first boyfriend ever, we were together and were going out. I was younger then, I was really young. We were going out and there was this very pretty girl that was so cute, cuter than me, and my boyfriend was just staring at her and I was like, ‘Hey! What are you looking at?’
And a lot of people were there, lots of them and I didn’t even know when I slapped him.
Ordega was recently under fire after the Super Falcons lost their opening match at the FIFA Women’s World Cup. She was accused by man fans for using make-up on her face during the game.
For her third World Cup, Francisca Ordega wanted to stand out. She had worn her hair in dreadlocks for her first and had a wavy, blonde ponytail for the second, but this time she wanted something bolder.
“I was looking for green and white,” she told New York Times about her search for hair extensions in the colors of her native Nigeria. “But then I saw the blue and purple — and I had to have them.”
She expedited an order all the way from the United States and braided the colorful strands into her hair herself.
But after the team’s 3-0 loss to Norway in their opening game, Ordega logged on to Twitter to find that people were blaming the defeat on her makeup, nails and long hair — it didn’t “make her run well,” one user wrote.
