This is the team’s first ever championship crown.

Ikidi, 31, and a defender for the Super Falcons played 20 games for her outfit in the Swedish Dammalsveskan.

The Nigerian moved to Pitea in 2010 with the recent title making it her third major medal since moving to Europe.

She had previously played for Linkoping with the recent win meaning the side would play in next term’s UEFA Women’s Champions League.
