Nigeria Lick Their Wounds After Ghana Spanking

The General Secretary of the Nigerian Football Federation, Barrister Musa Amadu, was grieved after Ghana dished out a painful loss to the Super Falcons. "It's so sad. We threw everything into this second leg to ensure that our team picked the ticket but God decreed otherwise.
"We just have to take it that way because it's all part of the game. It would have been great to have our women's team in the All-Africa Games because that would have meant one gold medal guaranteed. But it is not going to happen and we must not lose focus.
"The FIFA Women's World Cup is starting in Germany next month and we are in the final round of the qualifying race for the London Olympics. We must ensure the team is adequately prepared for the World Cup and that we don't falter in the last round of the Olympics qualifying against another tricky team like Equatorial Guinea," said Amadu.Nigeria will have to recover quickly from the Ghana defeat since Equatorial Guinea are seeking to revenge their loss to Nigeria at the 2010 African Women's Championship final.
