President Jonathan urges Falcons to continue Nigeria’s dominance of African women’s football

Super Falcons

Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has urged the Super Falcons to go all out to continue their glorious domination of African Women’s football with another victory against Cameroon, having won eight of the ten previous championships.

In a statement issued yesterday by Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, President Jonathan congratulates the Super Falcons of Nigeria on their qualification for the final of the 2014 African Women’s Football Championship in Windhoek, Namibia and next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.

Although the Falcons’ scintillating performance thus far in this year’s AWC tournament makes them the bookmakers’ favourites to win the final match, President Jonathan urges them not to take victory against Cameroon for granted, but to prepare very well and put their acclaimed soccer skills and strength to the best possible use on Saturday to achieve victory.

The President assures the Falcons and their handlers of the full support and best wishes of the Federal Government and all soccer-loving Nigerians as they strive to add another international sporting laurel to the glory of their fatherland.

He joins other Nigerians in praying for the team’s victory and looks forward to receiving them in Abuja with the Championship trophy.
