Jadesola Okhayian, President of the Sapphire Nigeria Women Football Supporters Club (SNWFSC), has expressed full confidence in the Super Falcons’ ability to secure qualification for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, tipping them to outshine South Africa. With the Super Falcons carrying a 1-0 advantage into the second leg in Pretoria, courtesy of a 43rd-minute penalty strike by captain Rasheedat Ajibade, Jadesola and her passionate supporters rallied behind the team at the Mko Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

Filled with delight over the first-leg victory against South Africa’s Bayana Bayana, Jadesola remains optimistic about the Falcons’ prospects, believing they are poised to end their 16-year hiatus from the Olympics. She emphasized the team’s readiness, determination, and focus, expressing confidence that they will bring joy to Nigerians.

Reflecting on their unwavering support during the first leg, Jadesola highlighted the SNWFSC’s commitment to providing maximum backing for the Falcons. She called on Nigerians, particularly those residing in South Africa, to turn out in large numbers to cheer the team to victory in the crucial second leg scheduled for Tuesday.

As the squad prepares for the decisive clash, they are set to depart Abuja for Lagos on Sunday night before embarking on their journey to South Africa. Upon arrival in Johannesburg on Monday morning, they will undertake a brief road trip to Pretoria. Official training at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium is scheduled for Monday evening, a crucial session ahead of the high-stakes encounter.

The outcome of the two-legged tie will determine which team earns one of the two coveted tickets to represent Africa at the 2024 Paris Olympics, with both the Super Falcons and South Africa vying for the honor.
