Nigeria will battle Germany in the second round of ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup. The game is a big litmus test for the reigning African Champions. The probability of qualification for Super Falcons is less than 50 percent. This is because Germany is one of the power houses in women’s football. The Germans have been World Champions before.
Nigerians are synonymous with the word ‘hope’ which they will cling on when the two sides face each other in a few days’ time. However, in the round-leather, anything is possible. The Nigerian team could shock the Germans if they get their axe together, with some bits of luck and good officiating. The controversial penalty re-take decision against France is still fresh in the minds of soccer-loving Nigerians.
Just like the men’s World Cup, no African country has won the tournament not to even talk of reaching the semi-finals. Will the Super Falcons spring a surprise against the German ladies? This question will be answered in a number of days.
