Interim Super Falcons coach, Christopher Danjuma, has lauded the performance of the Falconet after its 2-1 away win against DR Congo on Sunday.

Goals from Chinasa Uchendu in the 6th minute and Chiwendu Ihezuo in the 12th minute saw Nigeria record an important win in its bid for  a place at the 2016 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Danjuma, who failed to qualify the Super Falcons for the Rio Olympics and also had a disastrous outing at the just concluded African Games in Congo Brazzaville, said that the team won’t have any problem winning the return leg schedule for October 10 in Abuja.

The winner of the fixture will clash with the winner of the fixture between South Africa and Zambia, for a place in Papua New Guinea. Zambia hosted the two teams’ first leg in Lusaka on Sunday.
