Falcon’s captain Ajibade confident of victory against Banyana Banyana

Super Falcons Captain Rasheedat Ajibade has revealed one concern in her team’s camp ahead of their first-leg final round qualifying fixture of the 2024 Paris Olympics against South Africa’s Bayana Bayana on Friday.

Ajibade, who expressed confidence that Nigeria will beat South Africa at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja, said to NAN: “Yes, we have dominated women’s football in the continent for a while now but we are not dwelling on past glory but what we can do now.

“Picking the Olympic tickets is what really matters to us now. The mindset in camp is positive, although there is a little bit of stress, we are coping and are going to manage everything well professionally.

“One word I will say to my team is, ‘let’s do it,’ let’s go all out to secure victory for the country. I am optimistic of a win on Friday.”

A total of 19 players are in camp as of Wednesday morning, with the team still expecting US-based Asisat Oshoala and Chinwendu Ihezuo of Mexico.
