Abuja - Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has urged the Super Falcons to sustain the winning momentum by beating the She-Amavubi in the return leg of the African Women’s Championship (AWC) qualifier on Saturday.

"I came to congratulate you girls for defeating Rwanda in their own backyard, but I want you to sustain the tempo and the winning mentality of finishing what you started in faraway Rwanda,” director: technical of the NFF, Emmanuel Ikpeme told the team.

He reminded the girls that playing in front of their fans could bring added pressure but encouraged them to make sure they don't disappoint their fans.

The Super Falcons, who won the 1st leg in Rwanda 4-1, have in response vowed to go all out against the She-Amavubi by beating them by a wider margin and qualify for the AWC in Namibia.

Team captain Evelyn Nwabuoku said they would not underrate the Rwandans despite the 4-1 advantage they took from the first leg.

"We know the task ahead of us and we are determined to get the job donewell on Saturday and focus on winning the AWC."
