Falcons loss to South Africa, blessing in disguise – Ogunjimi

President of the Authentic Nigeria Football and Allied Sports Supporters Club, Abayomi Ogunjimi, believes the Super Falcons loss to Banyana Banyana of South Africa on the final day of the Aisha Buhari Cup will spur the Nigerian women’s team to achieve more in subsequent engagements.

Banyana spanked African champions Falcons 4-2 on Tuesday to emerge the best team at the invitational tourney.

Ogunjimi said that a lot of positives were recorded from the match.

He said,”The defeat is a blessing in disguise. It’s a wake-up call for us, it will ensure we prepare adequately for future engagements and put up a formidable team.

“We should not feel bad about the defeat, it’s football, it’s a revelation that the South Africans have invested so much in female football and they will be up for the top prize at the next Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.”

The ANFASSC supremo commended the organisers of the Aisha Buhari Cup and harped on the need to sustain the tradition.

“From the first day to the final day, it was super in all dimensions. Kudos to the Nigeria Football Federation, Chairman LOC, Seyi Akinwunmi and Aisha Falode, it’s a huge success, which I believe will birth a new spark for women’s football in Nigeria.”
