The former number one sports man in Nigeria commended the team for putting up a fighting spirit to overcome Korea, by putting behind their 0-3 loss to Norway in their opening game.

“I praise you for your victory against Korea Rebuild today. It is also Africa’s first win at the World Cup in France and a perfect gift to mark Democracy Day in Nigeria.

“Your determination and resilience has earned Nigeria a positive place in the group standing, giving you renewed hope to face France in your next match on Monday. Nigerians are praying for you and we will continue to support you to victory”.Dalung stated in a statement.

Since their last win against Canada at the 2011 edition of the FIFA World Cup, the Super Falcons have not won any of their matches until now.

A draw on Monday guarantees the Super Falcons to advance into the round of 16.
