NFF charges Falcons to overwhelm Teranga Lioness

11 April 2016, 11:38

Abuja - The General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Mohammed Sanusi has called on the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons, to go all out and dismiss the Teranga Lioness of Senegal from the qualifying race to this year’s African Women Cup of Nations taking place in Cameroon.

In a first leg tie on Friday, both teams played out a 1-1 draw at the Stade Demba Diop in the Senegalese capital, with Nigeria, the reigning continental champions, scoring first through Chioma Wogu before the hosts equalized in the second half. The second leg will be played on Tuesday.

“My charge is for the Super Falcons to go all out for a win against Senegal on Tuesday, so that we will qualify to defend the title won in Namibia two years ago.

“They should refuse to be distracted and go ahead and do the job on the field. Nigeria is the powerhouse of Africa in women’s football and we must maintain that position.”

The Teranga Lioness delegation flew with the Super Falcons back to Nigeria on Saturday afternoon, and will have the official training at the National Stadium, Abuja on Monday evening.

Tuesday’s second leg clash will start at 4pm at the National Stadium, Abuja.
