Falcons didn’t fail – Okon


Super Falcons coach, Edwin Okon is not crying over the exit of his team at the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.Nigeria kissed the tournament goodbye on Wednesday, following a 1-0 loss to USA. It was the earliest stage that the Nigerians would be exiting the competition in the last two editions.

Despite mounting criticisms of his wards’ performance, Okon is adamant that his charges gave a decent account of themselves and should not slated by fans for finishing last in “It was a great experience for us here in Canada. We weren’t focused enough in a few situations but that does not mean that we failed.

I wasn’t surprised to see USA make substitutions that were more defensive after our sending off as they knew they were playing a good team. You always have a 50-50 chance in every game. Today USA made the most of one of their chances and we didn’t, even though we had several.”
