Morocco vs Nigeria: Sunday Dare reacts as Super Falcons lose 5-4 in WAFCON semi-final

Sunday Dare, Minister of Youth and Sports Development, has lauded the Super Falcons’ performance against Morocco in the semi-finals of the ongoing Women African Cup of Nations (WAFCON).

Dare, in a statement from his media office on Tuesday, praised the team’s resilience, character, and game management.

”I salute your doggedness, commitment, and fighting spirit.

”For holding the Moroccans in front of an over 45,000 capacity crowd, you have once again displayed the never-say-die attitude of true Nigerians.

“Even when down to nine players after those red cards, you held your own.

”You are our champions. Nigeria is proud of you. I am proud of this team, even in defeat,” Dare said.

The nine-time champion bowed out after losing 5-4 on penalties following a 1-1 scoreline at regulation time.

Nigeria will square up against Zambia on Friday for the third-place match of the tournament.

Nigeria, Morocco, Zambia, and South Africa have qualified for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
