After their match against the Moroccan women’s team in the second semi-final of the African Women Cup of Nations, Nigeria’s Super Falcons were praised for their brave and energetic performance by Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Hon. Sunday Dare.
Hon. Dare praised the Super Falcons, saying, “Your tenacity, spirit, and game management deserve praise. Your tenacity, dedication, and battling spirit are admirable. You have once again shown the never-say-die spirit of true Nigerians by holding the Moroccans in front of a crowd of more than 45,000 people who could fit inside the stadium.
“You held your own even when we were down to nine players following those red cards. You stand up for us. You have the support of Nigeria.
