Super Falcons co-captain Onome Ebi has praised the effort of the team and contribution of the head coach Thomas Dennerby in ensuring that the team bounced back from their poor start to the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations in Ghana to becoming the first team in Africa to qualify for the 2019 FIFA Women World Cup in France.
Reacting to Nigeria booking her ticket to France for the 2019 Women World Cup, Ebi took to her Instagram handle to share her thoughts on the ongoing tournament. “We didn’t start the competition as well as we would have liked but we were determined to prove doubters wrong and not only defend our title by getting to the final but also to ensure our qualification for France 2019. The team responded very well after our first loss in the group stages and kept our belief that we would make it to the final.
Thank you to all the fans that have continued to get behind us. We shall go into the finals with confidence and knowing you are with us.
