The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Ibrahim Gasau has charged the Super Falcons to keep Africa’s hope alive as they set to face co-host Australia in their second momentous game of the FIFA Women’s World Cup against host Australia on Thursday.
Following the colossal defeat Morocco and Zambia suffered and the late-minute defeat Bayana Bayana experienced in their first game – Nigeria remains the central hope of Africa at the World Cup, being the only team to earn a point and a clean sheet.
Recalling the girls’ terrific effort against Canada, NFF President Ibrahim Gasau encourages the team to shun their past accomplishments and focus on attaining a victory over Australia.
“The Australians may pose a formidable challenge, but with unyielding determination and an unwavering commitment to the ball, we can prevail,” he said.
“I am charging the girls to go all out. This is a match in which we need to score goals,” the NFF boss said.
To qualify for the knockout round, Nigeria needs a win against Australia and at least a draw against the Republic of Ireland, regardless of the outcome of the game between Canada and the Republic of Ireland.
