Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu met with some players of the Super Falcons in Abuja on Monday, saying Nigeria is proud of them.
The Super Falcons narrowly crashed out of the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand bowing to England on penalties in the round of 16.
Speaking when he met with the players, Tinubu said “Although the final result did not go our way, I am here to remind you the the victory is not solely determined by the score on the field.
“The unbreakable spirit and unity that you demonstrated are true markers of success. You gave your all, we stand with you and we are so proud of you.”
According to Tinubu, “You have not only represented Nigeria on the global stage but have also become role models for our youth, especially young girls who now see their aspirations mirrored in you.
“I salute you today and welcome you back home and our goodwill and best wishes go to other players who have gone back to their base. You gave your all, and we stand with you. We are so proud of you.”
