‘Dakar is victory ground for Super Falcons’

07 April 2016, 16:28

Dakar - The Minister in charge of the embassy in Dakar, Lot Egopija has declared that Dakar is a victory ground for Nigeria and that all hands are on deck to ensure that the Super Falcons are victorious in their 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations qualifying match against the Terenga Lioness of Senegal on Friday.

Egopija said the embassy has been mobilizing Nigerians based in Dakar and environs to troop to the Stade Demba Diop on Friday evening to support the African champions.

"It is our duty to mobilize and also to inform the Nigeria community of the arrival of the team, and the match date and time. We have been doing that. Since we got the notice from the NFF, we have started through the informal method in informing fellow Nigerians here to come out and cheer the team to victory.

"This is not the first time Nigerians in Dakar would be hosting a National Team. We did that during the African Youth Championship and during the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, and we all are aware of the results. We went back to Nigeria with the trophies. So, Dakar has always been a victory ground for Nigeria. We are assuring everyone back home that this won't be an exception.

"Nigerians love football whether women or men. I am sure that they will troop out on Friday to cheer the Super Falcons to victory at the Stade Demba Diop," he concluded.
