Below are the remaining five that make up the top 10 in our list. Remember, the list was compiled by Greenhunters Sports International. Let us know if you have any objections – post a comment below.

6. Desire Oparanozie: 21 years of age Super Falcons striker has an exceptional eagle’s eyes for goals. She was the highest goal scorer and won the Golden boot award at CAF African Women’s Championship in 2014.

The former Pelican FC striker now plays for En Avant de Guingaup in France, where she scored 15 goals in 38 appearances this season.

 Watch out for Oparanozie at FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada this June.

7. Alex Iwobi: 19 years of age, Arsenal youth team forward is said to have skills only comparable to that of his nephew, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha.

Iwobi can dribble anything on earth, even objects flying at speed of lightening. Iwobi is always a thorn in the flesh for opponent defenders at the English Youth League. He has delivered 36 assists, 7 goals in 38 appearances.

 Arsenal management may not allow Iwobi participate in FIFA U20 world cup and the All African games. But watch out for this incredible talent in the future,

8. Courtney Dike displayed some marvelous skills at the FIFA U20 World Cup in Canada. Some analysts are of the opinion that Dike is a better strike partner for Oshoala. But then with the experience of Oparanozie, Dike had to sit on the substitute bench for most of CAF African women’s Championship.

But the super Falcons Head Coach, Godwin Okon knows the Oklahoma State University striker is a reliable re-enforcement for the team.

 Watch out for Dike at FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada this June.
