Super Falcons darting forward, Stella Mbachu has assured the people of Nigeria that the women senior national team will qualify ahead of the Lionesses of Cameroon for the London 2012 Olympics.
The Falcons had managed a 2-1 win over the Cameroonians in the first leg played at the national Stadium Abuja, and as it is now, they are faced with the herculean task of winning convincingly away from home when the second leg gets underway.
In a chat with Stella Mbachu, the Rivers Angel forward said: “That is football. We intended winning with a very wide margin in Abuja, but it did not turn out that way. But I am confident that the second leg in Cameroon will be a different ball game.”
When asked about her intent of retiring after the Olympics, Mbachu said: “I cannot say categorically that I am going to retire from international football. I feel I still have something to offer, but when the time comes, we will all be aware.”
Coming from a not-too-impressive performance at the World Cup in Germany in July, the Falcons seek to book the ticket for the women football event of the Olympics in London next year.
