Super Falcons determined to progress in Olympics race against feisty ‘Lucy’

Sanusi gingers Super Falcons as race for Olympics ticket hots up

Nigeria’s World Cup stars say they are keen to give their very best on Tuesday evening and consign Ethiopia to the heap in order to reach the penultimate round of qualifiers for next year’s Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in France. 

Coach Justine Madugu said on Sunday that his girls were disappointed by the result in East Africa and keen to step on the pedal at the MKO Abiola National Stadium on Tuesday evening.

“We were not too happy about the result of that first game. It’s unfortunate not to win the first leg but we are equally realistic with ourselves. We had some challenges in that game, and did our best to quickly surmount them. The girls have overcome those challenges and are really determined to make sure they are part of the Olympics next year.”

Goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie, who was formidable at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in the summer and has been huge for French club Paris FC in the ongoing UEFA Women Champions League, assured that the playing body is inspired to brush aside the Ethiopian challenge and look forward to the Olympic ticket after two more rounds of the qualification series.

“Our plan was to win the first leg (in Addis Ababa), but we have taken the draw and the lessons that came from there. We are looking forward to the return match in Abuja and we will go all out for victory.”
