Super Falcons of Nigeria skipper Onome Ebi has revealed the team is expecting victory in their 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup last group game vs Ireland on Monday.
The 40-year old defender, the oldest at the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup hosted by Australia and New Zealand made the disclosure in a pre match chat with Victor Modo.
A win vs already eliminated Ireland will seal Nigeria’s place in the knockout stage and possibly secure top spot, a first in their history at the World Cup.
A six-time Women’s World Cup participant, Onome Ebi who feels blessed over her longevity is optimistic of success for the Super Falcons.
Ebi said ” I feel blessed, I feel fulfilled. All my hard work, all my dreams, I’m achieving them right now, so I feel blessed. Just to tell the young ones out there, what hard work, discipline, dedication, and concentration can get you. It’ll get you beyond what your goals are.”
On the game against Republic of Ireland, the captain said in one sentence: “We’re expecting victory, nothing but victory.”
The game between Nigeria’s Super Falcons and the Republic of Ireland will take place at the Brisbane Stadium on Monday July 31 by 11am.
