Ahead of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, the outgoing Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Barrister Solomon Dalung, has charged the Super Falcons to replicate their African dominance at the world stage.
The sports minister made this known in a statement signed by his SA on media and publicity, Nneka Ikem-Anibeze, while congratulating the team for winning the 2019 WAFU Women’s Cup in Abidjan.
He extolled the virtues of the team, adding that their victory is a reinforcement of their dominance of women’s football in Africa and urged them to conquer the world at the biggest stage.
“I congratulate the Super Falcons for lifting the WAFU Women’s Cup in Cote D’Ivoire. I commend them and their officials for their excellence, team spirit, outstanding display and unity of purpose.
“I urge you to continue in like manner as you approach the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France next month. The task ahead is quite enormous but we are upbeat that you will make the country proud in France at the World Cup,” he said.
It would be recalled that Super Falcons edged hosts Cote D’Ivoire in the final 5-4 in a penalty shootout, having played out a 1-1 draw regulation time at the Stade Robert Champroux.
