Some members of Nigeria’s Super Falcons were hosted by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, on Tuesday.

Last week, the Falcons were dumped out of the tournament following a 4-2 loss on penalties to the Lionesses.

Nigeria performed spiritedly against the European champions, forcing the game into extra time and a penalty shootout after a goalless draw.

In appreciation of the Falcons’ feat, Sanwo-Olu said he was “honoured to have received” Asisat Oshoala, Rasheedat Ajibade and Monday Gift at Lagos House in Marina.


In a post on X, formerly Twitter, the governor praised the Falcons’ “incredible run” at the World Cup, adding that their performance “ignited a new era of enthusiasm for women’s football in Nigeria”.

“Honoured to have received some team members of our remarkable Super Falcons at the Lagos House in Marina earlier today. Asisat Oshoala, who came in the company of Rasheedat Ajibade and Monday Gift, came to pay us a courtesy visit,” the post reads.

“The Super Falcons’ incredible run at the FIFA Women’s World Cup has ignited a new era of enthusiasm for women’s football in Nigeria. Their achievements on the field and the unity they brought to our nation are truly remarkable. We will continue to empower and encourage our female athletes and also work towards a brighter future for women’s football in Nigeria.”


Remi Tinubu, wife of the president, also received some members of the Falcons’ World Cup squad on Monday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
