Paris 2024: Shorunmu Warns Falcons Of Group Opponents


Former Nigeria’s Super Eagles goalkeeper Ike Shorunmu has warned the Super Falcons to be wary of their group opponents in the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympics.

The 9-time African champions are placed in a tough group that has Brazil, Spain, and Japan.

While speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria, the former Besiktas of Turkey goalkeeper urged the team to be resilient.

” I urge the Falcons to be strong, focused, and resilient in their game at the group stage because the team belongs to the group of World champions.

At the same time, it’s a necessity for the Nigeria Football Federation and the technical crew to be involved in the seasoned players.

” Beware of aged players for better performance by the team at the group stage”, he said.

Flacons have missed the last 3 Olympics with their last appearance in 2008 in Beijing.
