We would bounce back in style - Falcons
Warri (Nigeria) - Barely 48 hours after the Falcons first ever defeat since the inception of the Africa Women Championship in the hands of Ghana's Black Queens, the Falcons seemed to have recovered from their coma and have started verbal war to set at ease the broken hearts of their teeming fans.
Nigeria's top striker, US based Marcy Akide who was tight-lipped after their defeat because she had told her nation hours before the titanic encounter that she would punish the Queens with goals is now promising the fans that the Falcons would bounce back in style.
"It’s unfortunate that we lost, the Ghanaians surprised us all, but its not too late to bounce back of which we are promising you.'
Florence Omagbeme, skipper of the Falcons expressed similar sentiments and went on to apologies to the nation. “We did not mean to break your hearts, but we would still make it big for you. The Queens shocked all of us and we have learnt our lessons the bitter way.”
Both fans and the Falcons are anticipating a Ghana/Nigeria finals of which the Falcons are optimistic to make amends. The Falcons are hopeful that they would win the cup for keeps. Meanwhile, the Black Queens have remained the toast of the fans after beating the Falcons last Tuesday.
