Super Falcons former goalkeeper at the 2007 Women’s World Cup held in China, Rachael Ayegba has turned to a bus driver in England.

Ayegba, who was also part of the Super Falcons squad to the 2006 and 2008 African Women’s Nations Cup is in the middle of a year’s training, and she currently drives the number 185, shuttling between Lewisham and Victoria.

The 35-year old shotstopper moved to England in 2018 and has since reckoned that driving a bus and playing in goal have a lot in common, which is about safety first and about not making a mistake.

Ayegba, a former PK-35 Vantaa goalkeeper for eleven years works for Go-Ahead, the bus and train giant that operates about a fifth of the capital’s buses on behalf of Tfl.
