    Congratulations to our Super Falcons. Keep fighting and keep pushing. We will get there soon.

    We deserved more than this but I can understand the situation we found ourselves.

    Super Falcons can secure the future because there’s hope, we saw what they did to the USA female team without having their main players available against the best team.

    Coach Waldrum may have not be paid a kobo yet, the man have improved the Super Falcons in less than six months.

    Am not really concerned about the FIFA ranking but I am proud of our ladies and the new coach for doing a great job so far.

    Keep it up Super Falcons. God bless Nigeria!!!
