Falcons Defender Onome Ebi Signs With Chinese Club Henan Huishang

Super Falcons center back Ebi Onome, has joined Chinese football club Henan Huishang FC after 14 months on the sidelines due to injury.

Ebi has not played since she got injured in Cameroon at the African Women Cup of Nations final against the host country in December 2016.

A deal was agreed for the Nigerian star on Wednesday.

The three-time African Woman Championship (AWC) winner is making a grand return to football after recovering from an injury sustained in December 2016 at the final game between Cameroon and Nigeria which Nigeria won.

Brave Onome managed to play the final minutes of the game with a fractured hand, fired by an exemplary spirit of patriotism that earned her the respect of all.

The injury, however, sidelined the centre back for more than a year.

She last laced her boots for FC Minsk in the Belarusian Premier League.
