The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to ensure adequate preparations for the Super Falcons ahead of the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.

The National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Mr Bestman Okereafor, made the appeal in a congratulatory message to the Super Falcons after the team won the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) in Ghana on Saturday.

Okereafor told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu that the Falcons needs adequate preparation to make a mark on the world stage.

According to him, NANS is appealing to the President of NFF, Amaju Pinnick, to keep to his promises towards ensuring adequate preparation and welfare for the Super Falcons ahead of the 2019 Women’s World Cup.

“We congratulate the Super Falcons over their well deserved victory at the just-concluded 11th AWCON in Ghana.

“The team has successfully defended the AWCON title for a historic ninth time.

“Super Falcons making the nation proud means that support must be given to them too because the promise made to them by the NFF president, must be kept,’’ he added.

NAN reports that the Super Falcons defeated South Africa’s Banyana Banyana 4-3 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in regulation and extra time played on Saturday.
