The General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, Director of Competitions, Mr. Bola Oyeyode and Director of Communications, Mr. Ademola Olajire received the Super Falcons team B after their successful outing.
Dr. Sanusi congratulated the ladies on their triumph at the WAFU Cup tournament in Abidjan and charged them to see it as a sign of great things to come in France.
“I believe the triumph in Abidjan will spur you to greater things at the World Cup in France. As you go to Austria for the final camping program and from there to the World Cup, I want you to go with the belief and confidence that you have the capacity to defeat any team in the world.”
While assuring the team that all their entitlements before and during the FIFA World Cup will be paid by the Federation, Sanusi challenged them to aim for a Nigerian record outing at the finals in France.
“It is 20 years ago that we accomplished what remains our best performance at the FIFA Women’s World Cup – a quarter-final berth in the USA.
It is time to write a new record, and I know that as you play Norway, the Korea Republic, and France in the group phase, this aspiration will be close to your hearts.
“No team can browbeat you. Rather, let them fear you by the confidence and ability that you show on the pitch.”
Eight home-based players, alongside technical and administrative officials, joined the Super Falcons camp.
