Fans slam Falcons over poor performance in Mexico
Written by Taiwo Adekola on February 22, 2023
A host of fans have aimed digs at the Nigerian women’s national team, the Super Falcons, following their poor performance at the just concluded Revelations Cup in Mexico.
The Super Falcons ended the tournament positively with a 1-0 win over Costa Rica at the Estadio León in León de los Aldamas in the early hours of Wednesday.
Esther Okoronkwo’s first goal for the Super Falcons was all Nigeria needed to claim their only win at the four-nation invitational tournament.
The Falcons were nowhere close to being ‘super’ after losing their first two games to hosts Mexico and South American giants Colombia by similar 1-0 scorelines.
Down and out without a chance of winning the tournament’s trophy, the former African champions finally brought their A-game to the table against Costa Rica’s Las Ticas.
The competition, which is to prepare the Falcons for the World Cup scheduled to hold later this year, has saw fans express doubts about the team’s chances of going far in New Zealand.
Expressing his concern, Jide Oluwalana believed the Falcons would struggle at the World Cup.
