The chairperson of the Nigeria Women Football League, Aisha Falode, has congratulated the national Under-20 Women’s soccer team, the Super Falconets for booking the ticket to play in the FIFA U-20 World Cup slated for France in August.
Falode applauded the Falconets for whitewashing the boastful South Africans 6-0 in the final leg played at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City, Edo State.
“I commend our girls for adding salt to the injury of the South Africans who had earlier fell 2-0 in their home. Recording an 8-0 aggregate tells a lot about Nigeria’s superiority over South Africa in women’s football.
“I salute the technical crew of the Falconets led by Christopher Danjuma and the players for their steadfastness and dedication to make sure Nigeria qualify for yet another edition of the U-20 World Cup.”
She also congratulated the Chairperson of the Women’s Football Committee, Alhaja Ayo Omidiran, for her dedication and commitment. She was also full of plaudits for the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF board for providing the enabling environment for the Falconets to do well.
