Osita Okeke, the Chairman of Nigeria Football Supporters Club in South Africa, has called for the injection of new players into the World Cup-bound Super Falcons.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Okeke on the telephone from Johannesburg, South Africa, remarked that there was the need for the team’s handlers to reorganise the team.
“We rejoice with Nigerians on the spectacular victory by the Falcons. Winning the African women’s football title nine times is not easy.
“But we appeal to the handlers of the team to take stock of the tournament and reorganise the team,’’ he said.
Okeke said Nigeria would achieve success at the 2019 female FIFA World Cup in France if the handlers introduce young and talented players into the team.
“We observed during the tournament that some of the Super Falcons players are no longer young.
“So, it is important to introduce new players into the team before the World Cup,” he said.
The chairman also urged the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to start early preparation for the World Cup by organising friendly international matches for the Super Falcons.
He commended the NFF for paying the players their bonuses throughout the tournament in Ghana.
