In a historic turn of events within the realm of Nigerian women’s football, 15-year-old Echefu Slyvia is rewriting the narrative, defying all expectations in the Nigerian Women’s Football League.

After four Matchdays, the teenager, who currently plies her trade for Lokoja-based side Confluence Queens, stands tall with an impeccable record – she is yet to concede a single goal in the league.

Sylvia’s imperial form has propelled Confluence Queens to possess the best defensive record in the league.

Her outstanding performance was on full display as she thwarted her former club, Heartland Queens, denying them victory in a gripping encounter at St. Owerri on Wednesday.

Confluence Queens emerges as the sole club side in the entire division that has successfully kept a clean sheet throughout the league.

The young goalkeeper, making a triumphant return to the club side where she initially broke through, treated fans at the Dan Ayim Stadium to a spectacle, showcasing her remarkable skills and becoming the youngest goalkeeper to accomplish such a feat in the league.

Following the game, an elated Echefu Slyvia expressed her gratitude to her teammates for their support and collective efforts in maintaining the clean sheet. She vowed to enhance her all-around game, acknowledging the hard work and unity within the team.

“I’m very grateful to my teammates for their support and efforts to ensure we are not distracted. We have worked really hard as a team; that is the reason I have been able to have four clean sheets from four matches,” Slyvia remarked.

Expressing her gratitude to her parents, friends, and especially her mother for their unwavering support and prayers, Sylvia said, ” I want to thank my parents and friends who stood by me in Owerri and most especially my mum for her prayers. I would also like to say a big thank you to my coaches and the team Manager who kept believing in me.”

Looking ahead, Confluence Queens will face Abia Angels FC of Aba on Wednesday at the Edo State University Stadium Uzaiure Iyamho, marking the team’s last home game for the year 2023.
