The Nigerian side have not made it past the group stages of the competition since 1999 despite dominating the African scene.
Ahead of the clash with the Europeans, football fans in the country took to Twitter to lend their support to the team as captured below:
The truth is, there's a massive gap between the support given to the Super Eagles and the support given to the Super Falcons, one that shouldn’t even exist in the first place. We need to do better. Pledge your support today! https://t.co/2LPrkwFfkW #WeGotBalls #Naija4Falcons https://t.co/emzkG3CuDq

The FIFA Women's World Cup is going on.
This is the time. Please support the Super Falcons.
Tweet about it. Discuss about it. It's time women did some real time talking when it comes to sport.
Tech is good, but Sport is a numbers-puller. Get involved.

When a team is going to the World Cup, there is excitement & plenty of support! The Super Falcons are playing in the World Cup tomorrow but there’s hardly anyone talking about them! They perform well! With 9 AFCON titles for the country , why aren’t they getting more love?
