Super Falcons captain Onome Ebi has asked Nigerians to give more support to the African champions as they seek a semi-final berth at the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.

After going down to South Africa in Group B opener on Sunday, the Nigerian ladies revived their hopes of retaining the title by spanking Zambia 4-0 on Wednesday.

Goals from Desire Oparanoize, Francisca Ordega, Rasheedat Ajibade and Amarachi Okoronkwo gave the Nigerians the crucial win in Cape Coast, Ghana.

The Falcons are now second in the group on three points, three adrift of leaders South Africa, who massacred Equatorial Guinea 7-1 in their second game.

And speaking ahead of their last group game with bottom-placed Equatorial Guinea, Ebi insisted that the eight-time African queens were in Ghana to win their ninth title.

“Nigerians should keep praying for us. They should keep believing in the Super Falcons because we are here for the trophy and we are here to qualify for the World Cup,” Ebi told newsmen.

”I believe that with hard work and with God on our side, we are going to achieve our twin objectives.”
