President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Nigeria’s Female Football team, the Super Falcons, for qualifying for the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023 after their emphatic quarter-final victory at the ongoing Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco.

Super Falcons, the record nine-time title holders and defending champions of WAFCON, triumphed 1-0 over Cameroon on Thursday night.

Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina in a statement, Thursday, said Buhari lauds the spirited performance of the team in the tournament and for maintaining its dominant posture as undisputed champions of the round-leather game and the most successful international women’s football team in the continent.

Buhari according to the statement said the team has won the tournament twice in 2016 and 2018, under his administration, assures the girls and their handlers that the whole nation is strongly standing with them and will continue to cheer them on until the final whistle in Morocco.

“He prays that the Super Falcons, who have produced some of the greatest African players in the history of the women’s game, will surpass their achievement in the last Women’s World Cup in 2019, where they advanced to the Round of 16, for the first time in 15 years.”

President Buhari also looks forward to the next generation of upcoming stars, who through hard work, discipline, resilience, and determination, will one day win the World Cup for Nigeria.
