President Goodluck has charged Nigeria's Super Falcons to ensure that they defeat Cameroon in the finals of the African Women's Championship.

The Super Falcons will clash with Cameroon in the finals of the AWC tournament hoping to reclaim the title.

Since inception, Nigeria has won the championship more than any other team, winning it on six occasions.

And Cameroon now stands in the way for a possible seventh win, which will be unprecedented.

Jonathan, in a statement through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, urged the team to use the Cameroon tie to continue their glorious domination of African football.

Adding that he is looking forward to receiving the players with the trophy in Abuja.

“As the Falcons prepare to face Cameroon in the AWC final, President Jonathan urges them to go all out to continue their glorious domination of African Women’s football with another victory," the statement read.

“Although the Falcon’s scintillating performance thus far in this year’s AWC tournament makes them the bookmakers’ favourites to win the final match, President Jonathan urges them not to take victory against Cameroon for granted, but to prepare very well and put their acclaimed soccer skills and strength to the best possible use on Saturday to achieve victory.

“The President assures the Falcons and their handlers of the full support and best wishes of the Federal Government and all soccer-loving Nigerians as they strive to add another international sporting laurel to the glory of their fatherland.”
