Major sponsor of Nigerian national teams, Globacom, has called on the Super Falconets of Nigeria to make Nigeria proud by winning the U-20 Women World Cup in Canada on Sunday when the team lock horns with Germany.
The Super Falconets walloped the Korea DPR U-20 Women team by six goals to two in the semi-finals on Thursday to advance to the finals of the competition for the second time, having lost to the Germans in the finals of 2010 U-20 Women World cup.
Globacom in a press statement in Lagos on Friday commended the Super Falconets for their hard work, total concentration and never-say-die spirit, which earned them the victory, and qualification for the Finals.
We believed from the beginning that the Falconets had the wherewithal to go all the way and we are not surprised that they are now just one match to claim the ultimate glory,” Glo stated.
“You played a well coordinated match and out classed the Koreans, we look forward to an outstanding final against the Germans when you will do Nigeria and Africa proud by winning the cup,” the statement further added.
The Super falconets have been on the ascendancy from the commencement of the tournament where they scored the fastest and second fastest goals in the history of the competition while the encounter against Korea has been rated as the highest scoring semi final match in the history of FIFA U-20 Women World Cup.
With six goals, four from Asisat Oshoala who was the star of the match and two others from Courtney Dike and Uchechi Sunday, the Super Falconets qualified for the finals with class and panache, playing purposeful and cohesive football.
Globacom commended the technical crew of the team for bringing the best out of the team and urged them not to rest on their oars, adding that the victory had deepened the Super Falconets’ rating as African Champions.
