he Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Sunday Dare, on Tuesday urged the Super Falcons to raise their heads up in spite of the 2-4 defeat by the Banyana Banyana of South Africa at the just-concluded Aisha Buhari Cup.
Dare stated this when he visited the subdued Randy Waldrum ladies in the dressing room after a disappointing result against their arch rival, the South African team.
Banyana Bayana emerged the winners of the Aisha Buhari Cup after they clipped the Super Falcons wings.
The highly entertaining match was played at the newly renovated Mobolaji Johnson Arena, formerly Onikan Stadium.
Dare urged the Super Falcons to put their pieces together for the next challenge ahead of them.
“You have the potentials, but there are some lessons to be learnt here and l’m sure it has been learnt.
“l’m glad that you did not sustain any injury so that you can continue to play for your club and your country.
“Raise your heads up, you have proven yourselves and you will have more opportunities and give yourself a challenge for the next matches,” he said.
