The Nigeria Football Supporters’ Club is planning to storm Cape Coast to drum support for holders Nigeria in the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana.
The Super Falcons were far from their best on Sunday, November 18, as they were beaten 1-0 by South Africa in their Group B opener.
To this end, the eight-time African champions must overcome Zambia in their second group game on Wednesday to revive their hopes of reaching the semi-finals.
And in a way of contributing to the team’s resurgence, the supporters’ club are going to Ghana to make their voices heard.
Speaking with newsmen in Lagos, National Chairman of the club, Samuel Ikpea, said the loss to South Africa cannot stop the girls from winning the title.
He said, ”It is painful our girls lost the opening game. Nevertheless, I believe they shall bounce back stronger to make us proud as they always.
” We are set to hit Cape Coast, Ghana in large numbers in several buses. We have also rallied our members in neighbouring countries like Benin, Chad, Togo, Cote D’Ivoire and Cameroon to join us in Ghana, to cheer our girls to ultimate victory in the remaining matches of the championship.”
