Jonathan wishes Falcons success in women’s final

24 October 2014, 15:19

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has wished the country’s senior women national football team well for the African Women’s Football Championship final in Namibia.

The President, in a statement by his spokesman, Reuben Abati, urged the Falcons to go all out to continue their glorious domination of African women’s football with another victory.

“As the Falcons prepare to face Cameroon in the African Women’s Championship Final, President Jonathan urges them to go all out to continue their glorious domination of African Women’s football with another victory, having won eight of the ten previous championships,” the President is quoted.

He congratulated the team for reaching the final at the expense of rivals South Africa.

He said Falcons' scintillating performance thus far in this year’s AWC tournament makes them the bookmakers’ favourites to win the final match and urged them not to take victory against Cameroon for granted, but to prepare very well and put their acclaimed soccer skills and strength to the best possible use on Saturday to achieve victory.

The President assures the Falcons and their handlers of the full support and best wishes of the Federal Government and all soccer-loving Nigerians as they strive to add another international sporting laurel to the glory of their fatherland.

He joins other Nigerians in praying for the team’s victory and looked forward to receiving them in Abuja with the trophy.
