FFCN Dares Super Eagles to go for Win in Freetown
National President, Football Fans Club of Nigeria, FFCN, Ambassador Oluwakemi Ogunfuwa has appealed to the players and technical crew of Super Eagles to go for maximum points against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in the second leg of the 2021 AFCON Qualifiers billed for tomorrow in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
The Lagos based football administrator stated this while playing host to newsmen journalists in her office at Obanikoro, Lagos.
“Well, we all felt bad that we were not at the stands to cheer Eagles to victory but no thanks to COVID-19. I think in sports, particularly in football, impossibility is nothing. We have seen the worst upset than this in football. Brazil were humiliated in the hands of Germany, same with Argentina with their Lionel Messi. At club level, Barcelona and Liverpool had their fare share of the upset lately from Bayern Munich and Aston Villa. I think the 12th man support at our home could have probably made difference as the atmosphere would have be in favour of Nigeria and the players would have been greatly encouraged with ambience and melodious renditions emanating from us” The CAF award winner posited.
“Let me further add that failure is not the final and success is never ending.
The ability of the Super Eagles to rise up from the unexpected results and wallop the Leone Stars in their own soil would serve as tonic to delete the ugly memory in the mind of sports loving Nigerians.”
“Let the Eagles put the last results behind them and teach the lowly ranked Sierra Leone a lesson of their life in their own backyard tomorrow so as to make Nigerians happy again”. President charges.
The match comes up at 5pm Nigerian Time.
