President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday expressed satisfaction over the Super Falcons victory against the South Korean team in the ongoing FIFA Women World Cup in France.
The Nigeria’s women team had yesterday rekindled the country’s chances of qualifying for the next round in the ongoing FIFA WWC with a 2-0 win over their South Korean counterparts.
Super Falcons first goal landed in the 29th minute via an own goal from Korean defender Kim Doyeon who kicked the ball into her own net following pressure from Super Falcons striker Desire Oparanozie.
Asisat Oshoala who plies her football trade with Barcelona FC scored the second goal in the 75th minute after a solo effort.
With the win, Super Falcons would move into the next round if they could get one point from their last group match against France on Monday at 8 p.m.
While reacting, the President Buhari described the victory as well-deserved.
Buhari said: “I’m pleased I was able to watch the Super Falcons match against South Korea, after the Democracy Day Lunch.
“Congratulations to the Team and Coaching Crew. A well-deserved win on a very special day for Nigeria. We are all proud of your victory.”
