It was a big moment for the Falcons star, who had her mother in attendance as she scored in a league match, a tremendous moment she had never before witnessed.

Reflecting on the match, Ajibade said, “It was an emotional game for me. I think this is going to live in my heart forever because it is the first time my mom comes to the field to watch me play football. And I was so happy that I could get a goal for her. It’s so special.”


Ajibade added, “My mom means a lot to me. My mom is life to me. My mom is everything I have today. I want to always make her proud. I’m happy that today I can make her proud.”
