Former Super Eagles Captain, Sunday Oliseh has heaped praises on the Super Falcons for their good performance in the last Group A game against France on Monday.
The multiple African Champions gave a complete performance against the French , but lost to a controversial penalty awarded to the hosts by the referee in the 79th minutes.
French penalty taker Wendy Renard had missed the initial penalty, before the referee called for a retake , after Falcons goalkeeper Nnadozie was adjudged to have come off her line, a decision Oliseh doubted .
“Extremely proud of our Super Falcons of Nigeria vs France at the World Cup. These girls gave it everything against a French side cheered on by a near full stadium & a doubtful retaken penalty. I am sad,disappointed, but proud of these girls.”
The Falcons will have to wait to know if they will progress to the next round, as one of the tournament’s best losers, while the hosts matched on to the round of 16 with nine maximum points.
