Lesbianism ‘eradicated’ from Nigerian women’s soccer teamAround the World Thursday, June 30th, 2011
NIGERIA – The Nigerian women’s soccer team has announced that it has successfully eradicated homosexuality from the squad. In an astonishing statement to the New York Times, Coach Eucharia Uche claims that since she was hired in 2009 she had rid the team of lesbianism.
Uche, who is married with two children, said lesbianism was “morally very wrong” and “a dirty issue.”
Uche told the Times, “The issue of lesbianism is common. I came to realize it is not a physical battle; we need divine intervention in order to control and curb it. I tell you it worked for us. This is a thing of the past. It is never mentioned.”
Uche said that she discovered which players were lesbians and brought in Pentecostal ministers to pray with the team.
In the same article, James Peters, a former technical assistant for the country’s soccer federation, claimed he had sacked some players for being lesbians.
Peters said, “Having coached female teams in the U.S., I have an in-depth knowledge about how lesbians operate. When I was drafted to work with the team last year, I decamped some of the players, not because they were not good players, but because they were lesbians. It did not go down well with some of the players because we made sure that neither the ‘husband’ nor the ‘wife’ made the team.”
The Nigeria national women’s football team, nicknamed the Super Falcons, is controlled by the Nigeria Football Federation.
