Super Falcons’ goalkeeper, Tochukwu Oluehi, has joined Spanish club Pozoalbense from Rivers Angels for the 2020-21 season.
She will be joining her compatriot, Evelyn Nwabuoku, at the Reto Iberdrola outfit who joined the club a fortnight ago.
Oluehi’s new deal with the Spanish side ends her six-year journey with the Nigeria Women’s Premier League champions.
She had enjoyed stints at Belarusian side, Bobruichanka Bobruisk, where she debuted in the UEFA Champions League in 2013, before turning out for Norwegian Toppserien club, Medkila, in 2016.
Oluehi, 33, starred for Nigerian clubs, Bayelsa Queens, before Sunshine Queens, and later Rivers Angels, who she helped to four domestic titles since 2014 amid a move to Norway.
She has featured in three editions of the Women’s World Cup, the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the 2007 African Games and four Africa Women’s Cup of Nations, which she won three times.
The club confirmed the signing in a statement, saying: “It is a complete guarantee of safety under the sticks, thanks to her placement, know-how and experience.
“She has enormous cold blood at decisive moments. She transmits a lot of confidence to the defence as she is a very safe goalkeeper in almost all her interventions.
“She has a lot of personalities and does not hesitate at the exits. She holds up well against one-on-one moves and has leadership skills.
“She hardly ever gets complicated. Her winning mentality will make her one of the best goalkeepers in the category.
“She is always attentive to the movements of the opponents because she has a great intuition to read the plays.”
