Amaju Pinnick lauds ‘resilient’ Super Falcons

President of the Nigeria Football Federation and FIFA Council Member, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick on Thursday showered praises on the Super Falcons, saying their resilience against the fit-fighting Indomitable Lions reflected the fabled Nigerian spirit.

“I congratulate the girls for a strong performance against another strong team. They showed that truly, Nigeria is the powerhouse of African women football. They held firm to victory even in the face of pressure towards the end.

“Their strength and perseverance was highly commendable. They have done very well to qualify for the FIFA World Cup. Now, we can aim for retention of the trophy.”

The Super Falcons have set up a mouth-watering semi final duel against host nation Morocco, with vintage football expected from both teams who have already qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
