WWC: Tinubu sends message to Super Falcons ahead of clash with Australia

President Bola Tinubu has encouraged the Super Falcons to continue representing Nigeria as honorable ambassadors as they compete to win the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The Super Falcons will meet Australia in their second group encounter at the 2023 world cup, which is taking place in Australia and New Zealand.
In a statement by Mr. Dele Alake, Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, Tinubu urged the players to give it their all, just as they did in the game against Canada at the first match.

‘’I take immense pride in the Super Falcons impressive performance in the opening match against Canada, a formidable opponent and the reigning Olympic Champion.

‘’I firmly believe that the upcoming match on Thursday will be a thrilling encounter that will culminate in victory for the Nigerian team,’’ he said.

Tinubu acknowledged the Super Falcons’ remarkable achievements as a dominant force in women’s football in Africa.

The President expressed confidence that the blending of new talents with seasoned veterans would propel Nigeria’s success in women’s football to even greater heights in the tournament.

He assured the players and the coaching crew of the enthusiastic support of all Nigerians, urging the team to continue exemplifying Nigeria’s spirit of determination and excellence.

Meanwhile, in the other group B match, Canada gave their hopes of qualifying for the round of 16 a big boost after coming from a goal down to beat Republic of Ireland 2-1 in Group B on Wednesday.

It is Canada’s first win of the tournament after they were held to a goalless draw by the Nigeria’s Super Falcons in their first game.

In their Group B game Ireland lost 1-0 to co-hosts Australia.

The defeat means Ireland have crashed out of the tournament with one game left to play.

Katie McCabe gave Ireland the lead just four minutes into the game but Canada equalised following an own goal by Megan Connolly five minutes added time in the first half.

In the 53rd minute Canada went 2-1 ahead thanks Adriana Leon.

Australia will take on the Super Falcons in Thursday and could seal qualification into the knockout stage with a win.
