“What we played against Cote d’Ivoire is just a tip of the iceberg as Super Falcons are capable of doing greater things in this championship. “We always knew the Ivoirians who eliminated the 2012 champions Equatorial Guinea will be tough so we took them seriously.
“In the next game we will see a different Falcons. We shall play better now that we have navigated our opening game successfully. Out target is to reclaim the title and we are here to give our best to achieve that”, Okobi stated.
The Super Falcons scored through Esther Sunday and Desire Oparanozie (a brace), while the Ivorians scored an own goal to give Nigeria four goals, while Fatou Culibaly Tiegnou scored one of their goals against Nigeria.
