Taking to his official Twitter handle, Tinubu posted a photo of the team, saying the team’s brilliant effort did not go unnoticed despite the outcome.

The president wrote, “I must commend the effort by our Super Falcons #NGSuper_Falcons at the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Your brilliant performance did not go unnoticed despite the final outcome. You made Nigeria proud on the global stage!”
