Ex-Super Falcons player, Maureen Madu has said she wouldn’t want to be distracted by the number of games she played for the Super Falcons, saying her priority is to empower the girl child through sports.
The ex-Falcon star was reacting to a statement released by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) crediting her with 52 official matches for the national team from 1995 to 2007, when she retired as against the 101 caps peddled in some quarters.
NFF’S statement was in response to various news sources claiming Madu had about a 101 caps for the country, with fans demanding that she be celebrated like other Super Eagles players who reached 100 caps.
Reacting to NFF’s statement, Madu told newsmen in Abuja on Monday that: “Google cannot lie and above all I just want to get the issue behind me and move on. I don’t have more to say.
“I just want to focus on improving the life of the girl-child through sports and that is what we are doing at Maureen Madu Football Kiddies Camp.’’
Madu was also a former assistant coach of the senior women’s national team, the Super Falcons.
