The city of Melbourne, Australia witnessed a massive turnout from Nigerians living there when the Super Falcons tackled Canada to a standstill goalless draw.

Unknown to many that these Nigerian defiled and dared the odds to be at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium on Friday afternoon to support the team in their opening game in Group C at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

In an exclusive chat with www.totorinews.com, Dr. Remi Yusuf, the President of Nigeria Society in Victoria, said that Nigerians took permission of absence from duty in order to cheer their darling team, the Super Falcons.

“It was nice seeing many Nigerians at the stadium rooting for the Falcons against Canada at the time the game was played.

“That was a very huge sacrifice made by Nigerians in a country where money is paid by hour. 

“Nigerians are paid by the hour in Australia and you could see that many Nigerians were at the stadium and their presence helped to boost the morale of the team.

Speaking on the next game against Australia, Dr. Yusuf said that despite being an Australian Nigerian, she is fully in support of Falcons to fly pass the Matildas of Australia. 

“I go for Nigeria against Australia. I am originally a Nigerian Australian. I will want Nigeria to excel. I go for my root” she said.
