AWCON 2018: "Am yet to see that Motivator that will make us to win Gold," Moses Nagogo Bako in an Exclusive interview with Nigfooty Sports

Famous Nigeria Female Soccer Fan, advocate and stakeholder Mr Moses Nagogo Bako was our guest on Nigfooty Sports Interview Link, speaking to us on the upcoming Africa Women Cup of Nations Ghana 2019. The tournament kicks off on the 17th of November, 2018 featuring 8 nations from across Africa.
Mr Bako revealed that he's is yet to see the motivator that will make the Super Falcons to win Gold in Ghana, "if we win the title, I will be very happy but presently my prayer is that we finish 1st-3rd. Qualify for the world cup. Am yet to see 'that thing', 'that spirit', 'that motivator', that will give us gold. If it comes before the 17th, then be sure of the AWCON cup again." Bako said. Truly are the girls motivated the way the boys are motivated?

He also stressed that the team representing Nigeria is a good one, "The Team representing us is a good one, the normal faces we see in the national colours and we are expecting that they do well," Bako added.
Analysing the first game against the Bayana Bayana of South Africa, he warned our girls to be careful of the South Africans, "As a fan of the game, want to believe that we will be victorious. However judging by our level of preparations and motivation we have to be careful. I was in Cameroon in 2016 and South Africa game against us was one of the toughest. They are fast and have been preparing since then. We have experience and strong players but pace, middle and back must be taken into consideration. All in all football is very difficult to predict. But something in me still says we will win," said Bako.

Mr Bako also shared his views on the second and the third group games, "Our first match will actually determine what happens in the next two. Like I mentioned earlier, is girls our well motivated or prepared for this tournament? Equatorial Guinea may pose a threat but not Zambia. We will definitely qualify from the group."
He also believed that all the players involved will do well but lamented the exclusion of Goalkeeper Alaba Jonathan and Midfielder Evelyn Nwabuoku, "Well I actually don't know the plan and pattern of the Coach and since all players can not be there at the same time and the players here are good to go but I would have loved the inclusion of Goalkeeper Alaba Jonathan and Midfielder Evelyn Nwabuoku," Bako added.

On a final note Mr Bako further expressed shock at the death of his friend's wife, didn't know that Coach Ajuma Ottache Sickness was as serious as that, but sent his condolence greetings to Mr Peter Ottache the husband of Late coach Ajuma Ottache who died on Saturday, "My deepest sympathy to you my friend and your entire family. Ajuma is a general in the Lord's army and the dead in Christ shall rise again. This hope we have believing God to comfort you and your family. Stay strong Super Manager."

Mr Bako was already planning his trip with Mr Peter Ottache on how they will make it to Ghana to Support the Super Falcons not until the news broke that Mr Peter's wife passes on.

Mr Bako responded to whether he will still be going to Ghana, "Yes am planing to be there, I can't give my final word because my friend Peter Ottache, who we planned to go together lost his wife, Ajuma Ottache. I need to see him in Lagos before I decide."

The 2018 AWCON will kick-off in Ghana on Saturday November 17 and Nigeria will be hoping to defend the title they won in Cameroon two year ago when they face South Africa in their first game on Sunday 18th of November, 2017, at 4:30pm West Africa Time.
