Falcons woo fans for Zimbabwe game



Super Falcons’ manager, Kadiri Ikhana has called on Lagos fans to come out enmasse to support his wards in Saturday's AWC qualifier against Zimbabwe.

Falcons played before huge crowd at the Rufaro stadium, Harare and Ikhana believes that Lagos can command larger crowd to support the team.

"I will like to urge all football fans in Lagos to come out and support the team on Saturday.

"The game against Zimbabwe is a very crucial one and the fans can be the 12th-man if they give us the support we need to defeat them.

"In Zimbabwe, the Rufaro stadium had about 20,000 fans and it was an amazing atmosphere.

"Even though their team lost by 2-0 they still had the support of their fans and we pray to receive the same in Lagos."

Falcons won the first fixture 2-0 and are now set to seal the tie in the reversed fixture at the Teslim Balogun stadium, Lagos.

"Nigerians should expect victory from us.

"The players are very fit and strong and they have been working hard in the past couple of months and I have confidence in them.

"Zimbabwe are not weak opponent but I believe we have the players that can complete the job on Saturday.

"All we need from Nigerians is their support, and the gates will be thrown open for free entry" said the former Enyimba manager.

Victory for Falcons will ensure they defend their title in Equatorial Guinea in November 2012.
