Legendary Nigerian striker Mercy Akide has described the Super Falcons 2-1 loss to South Africa in their 2022 WAFCON Group C opened as disappointing.

After a goalless first half, South Africa netted two quick goals to race into a 2-0 lead thanks to Jermaine Seoposenwe and Hildah Magaia.

Rasheedat Ajibade pulled a goal back for the Falcons in added time but it was just a consolation goal as the South Africans held on to claim all three points.

The win was South Africa’s third against the Falcons in the history of the WAFCON.

Also, it is their third win (one loss) in the last four meetings against the African champions.

And reacting to the defeat, Akide urged the Falcons players not to despair.

“Disappointing result. But we still believe in our @NGSuper_Falcons,” she wrote on Twitter.

“Keep your head up, move on to the next and keep #GoingFor10.”

The team has the chance to bounce back when they face debutant Botswana on Thursday.
