Former Green Eagles goalkeeper Emmanuel Okala has said the Super Falcons still needed to work hard in spite of their 2-0 win over South Korea in the second game of the FIFA Women's World Cup in France.
The Super Falcons beat the Asians to record their first win in the group stage of the ongoing tournament.
Okala told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu that the team played well and showed a lot of resilience in their FIFA Women's World Cup encounter with South Korea.
“I must commend and congratulate the Super Falcons and all Nigerians for this victory. It is a good thing that they won. They deserve it after putting in lots of enterprise in the game.
“I will, however, appeal to them to work harder. They need to continue to improve in subsequent games and brush up various departments of the team.
“We wish them well and will continue to pray for success in all their remaining matches in France.
“I believe that they can do us proud,’’ Okala said.
The Nigerian team had earlier lost their opening game 3-0 to Norway in Reims on Saturday.
The team will now be facing hosts France in their next and final Group A fixture on Monday.
