SPORTS Minister and Chairman, National Sports Commission (NSC), Dr. Tammy Danagogo, has congratulated the female national team, the Falcons and the national U-23 football team for posting superlative victories against their opponents at the weekend.

While the Falcons hosted their Malian counterparts in the second leg of the All Africa Games  qualifiers at the Abuja National Stadium on Friday, the U-23 side, tutored by Samson Siasia, engaged their Zambian counterparts in a make or mar second leg also in the All Africa Games qualifier in Lusaka.

According to the Minister’s Special Assistant on Media, Patrick Omorodion, Dr. Danagogo was full of praises for both teams, especially the U-23 side who had a more difficult nut to crack after they drew 0-0 with the Zambians in the first leg of the qualifier decided at the Abuja National Stadium a fortnight ago.

“Most people had given up hope of the team qualifying but like the typical Nigerian, who never gives up until it is over, they went to Zambia and played their hearts out and came out victorious.

They must be commended for their team spirit and determination to succeed. The Falcons were not left out too as they rose to the occasion and showed that the 1-1 draw they played earlier in Mali was not a true reflection of what makes them the champions of Africa.

They were business-like and didn’t want to leave anything to chance. “I commend the efforts of both teams and their technical crew for the wonderful performance and urge them to redouble their efforts as they prepare for the competition proper, “ the Minister said, stressing, “We at the National Sports Commission will play our own part to ensure they get all they need to represent our country creditably.”
