Following the dismal performance put up by the national women’s team, the Super Falcons at the just concluded 2012 African Women Championship, AWC in Equatorial Guinea, former Falcons Coach Ismaila Mabo has called for  exFalcons’ players to handle the team.

Mabo made this call on Wednesday on BrilaFM while commenting on the reported resignation of Coach Kadiri Ikhana. He added that it is high time the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, gives one of the ex-Falcons’ players a chance to prove their mettle with the national female team.

“I think it is high time we allow one of the girls that had done so well in the national team to take charge of team. We have many of them around who, if given a chance we would be surprised with how much they know about the game,” Mabo said.

On what was responsible for Falcons inability to fly in Equatorial Guinea, Mabo said: “I saw this coming a long time because we have not been planning for long term.”

South African have been working hard to beat us because they know if they can do that, they will rule Africa.

“This failure in Malabo could have been averted if NFF had looked into Jossy Lad’s report after Equatorial Guinea beat Falcons in 2008 to dethrone us of the title. They would have seen this coming.”
