Ahead of Saturday’s final of the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) in Ghana, President Muhammadu Buhari has charged players and technical crew of the Super Falcons to make Nigeria proud by beating South Africa to the trophy.

His message was conveyed by Nigeria’s High Commissioner to the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Olufemi Abikoye during the team training session at Presco Secondary School on Friday.

Having defeated Cameroon 4-2 via a penalty shootout in the semi-final, Ambassador Abikoye called on the team to remain focus and put in their technical know-how to ensure victory against South Africa.

“You defeated Cameroon at home the last time to win the title so everyone knew the semi-final match between both teams was going to be very tough. But we thank God you put in all your strength and you listened to the instructions of the coaches and were able to come out on top. The analysts gave the match to Cameroon, but you proved them wrong.

“So, on behalf of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, I want to say big congratulations.”

“On Saturday again, it is not going to be easy. Cameroon came out strong because you defeated them in Yaounde in the 2016 Final. You cannot allow South Africa to beat us twice here in Ghana. It is now your turn to seek your revenge against the South Africans and win the trophy on Saturday”.

“We have large numbers of our people who have been here for long. They will all come out on Saturday to support you. So, put all your energy and technical know-how into the encounter and win the trophy. A champion will always be a champion”.
