The 1st Vice- President of the Nigeria Football Federation and Chairman, Lagos State Football Association, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi has expressed confidence in the abilities of the Super Falcons to do the nation proud during the FIFA Women World Cup in France.
He hinged his confidence on the recent victories of the team at both the female AFCON and WAFU cup championships.
” The feel good factor that comes with winning a tournament will certainly rub off on the aura of the team and its officials. Winning is a habit. And you know, it would be key for the team going into the world cup,” he enthused.
The renowned and highly resourceful football administrator, went ahead to dismiss rumours that the federation have placed a specific target for the team at the world cup.
” There is no specific target but we aim to win the cup. As long as everyone is satisfied that they have done their very best then they should return to Nigeria with their heads held up high.
” We hope that they can do that with the cup or at least having gone quite far in the tournament. And on our parts, we are doing everything possible to encourage and motivate the team to do the nation proud at the world cup, ” he added.
