Lagos State's First Lady, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-olu visited Super Falcons during their training session at Mobolaji Johnson Arena in the state ahead of their match against Black Queens in Ghana in the Women Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The visit followed the Super Falcons' victory on Wednesday as they brushed aside the Black Queens in the first leg in Lagos.

The First Lady commended the Super Falcons' performance against their opponents, encouraging them to repeat the success in Ghana on Sunday.

“First of all, I want to say thank you for the wonderful work you are doing out there. Thank you to the Coaches, too. Thank you for your resounding victory against Ghana on Wednesday. We are proud of you and we will continue to encourage and support you.

“You have done well by winning the first leg and we need you to go out there on Sunday and ensure that you bring home the three points needed to secure your qualification for the 12th Women Africa Cup of Nations holding in Morocco next year,” she said.

The First Lady also urged Nigerians to continue to support the team to make the nation proud.

Besides, Sanwo-Olu said the girls must understand the need to continue to make the nation proud, adding that this would motivate others, especially the girl-child.

According to her, “As you are winning, you are inspiring a lot of young girls out there. A lot of young girls are watching you, believing that they can do it also. The more you win; the more you inspire girls. So, go there and do what you have always done. 

Super Falcons captain, Barcelona forward Asisat Oshoala expressed appreciation to the First Lady for the visit, saying it would go a long way to spur them to do their best and ensure victory in Ghana on Sunday. 

“We really do appreciate you for taking out time to identify with us. We will be heading to Ghana tomorrow. I promised we are going to put in our best to get the three points to qualify for the Women Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco next year,” Oshoala said.
