The Minister in charge of the Nigerian Embassy in Dakar, Lot Egopija has backed the Super Falcons to defeat the Terenga Lioness of Senegal when both teams battle today in the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations qualifying match billed for Dakar.
Egopija told thenff.com when he visited the Super Falcons at their Al Afifa hotel in Dakar on Wednesday that the embassy has been mobilizing Nigerians based in Dakar and environs to troop to the Stade Demba Diop on Friday evening to support the African champions.
“It is our duty to mobilize and also to inform the Nigeria community of the arrival of the team, and the match date and time. We have been doing that. Since we got the notice from the NFF, we have started through the informal method in informing fellow Nigerians here to come out and cheer the team to victory.
“This is not the first time Nigerians in Dakar would be hosting a National Team. We did that during the African Youth Championship and during the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, and we all are aware of the results. We went back to Nigeria with the trophies. So, Dakar has always been a victory ground for Nigeria. We are assuring everyone back home that this won’t be an exception.
