Aisha Falode, the Nigeria Professional Women’s League Chairman, declared in a statement that the event will be grandiose, even as she is already in Benin City to ensure that Nigeria defeat Tanzania in the World Cup qualifier.
Falode assured that the Nigerian team under the support of the Edo state government will not only deliver on qualification for the World Cup, but will attempt to win it this time around after reaching the semi-final of the championship the last time.
Falode along with members of the women football fraternity, were with the team during their training session on Thursday, with indications that the team will be richly appreciated if they overcome the Tanzania hurdle.
Edo FA Chairman, Frank Ilaboya on his part declared that logistics have so far been perfect for both the Nigerian and the Tanzanian national teams, noting however that due to flight alterations the away team will now arrive Benin City on Friday.
The Tanzanian team when they arrive will also be quartered at the Prestige Hotel, where the Nigerian national team is also based.
“We are ready for a proper World Cup qualifier and everything necessary has been put in place by the Edo State Government”, Ilaboya declared while chatting with select journalists.
