Mikel Showers Falcons With Praises And Encouragement

Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, can't hide adoration for the Super Falcons despite their 1-0 defeat to France on Monday, which put them on the verge of elimination from the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Wendie Renard’s 79th-minute penalty condemned the hard-fighting African champions to their second defeat of the tournament.
Nigeria finished as Group A’s third best side and could advance to the Round of 16, should they rank among the four best third-placed teams from the six groups.

Despite the team’s defeat, Mikel Obi has expressed his pride in their performance and assured them of maximum support from the Eagles’ camp in Egypt.

“I just want to say well done for your efforts, we’ve been watching […] in camp.

“The Super Eagles have been keeping a close eye on the games watching you guys. You’ve been doing amazingly
“You guys have been giving the best, you played wonderfully well [against France] but it’s a shame you lost, and I want to say keep going and hopefully you guys can make it.

“The entire Super Eagles are behind you and wish you the best,” Mikel said in a video posted on Super Falcons’ Twitter handle.
