Falode salutes Falconets heroics, thanks league, Obaseki

Tuesday, 3 October 2017


 NPFL Chairman and sportscaster extraordinaire,  Aisha Falode,  has congratulated the U20 Women national team,  styled Super Falconets for making it to the next round of the World Cup qualifying championship.

 The team defeated Tanzania 6-0, away from home,  after winning the first leg in Benin City 3-0, to cruise to a 9-0 aggregate win.  The team next meet Morocco.

 Speaking on their heroics,  Falode,  said the young lasses have demonstrated how every national team should play away games, attributing their success to the key fact that the Nigerian Women League ran smoothly this season without  boycott of games as witnessed in recent. “The girls simply demonstrated the strength of our league and they can still do more”.  She said they were simply marvelous and deserve all the encouragement not only to qualify for the World Cup but go ahead and win the trophy.

 Falode also praised Coach Christopher Danjuma for the manner he approached the return leg in Tanzania,  after it appeared the team missed a lot of scoring chances in the Benin game. She also admonished the coach not to rest on his oars as there are still many rivers to cross.

 She however reserved the larger chunk of the praises for Governor Godwin Obaseki and his deputy Comrade Philip Shaibu,  for grooming the girls for the Tanzania massacre. "If our amiable Governor didn't host and even splash cash on them in Benin City, we probably might be talking differently.  Once again,  I say thank you,  Governor Obaseki and his team", she concluded.
