Former Super Falcons coach, Eucharia Uche has blamed the team's elimination from the Olympic qualifiers on lack of respect for their African opponents. Super Falcons failed to hold onto an early goal to lose 1-2 to Equatorial Guinea and crash out of the race for the Women’s Football Tournament of the 2016 Olympics.

 Former Super Falcons coach, Eucharia Uche has blamed the team's elimination from the Olympic qualifiers on lack of respect for their African opponents. Super Falcons failed to hold onto an early goal to lose 1-2 to Equatorial Guinea and crash out of the race for the Women’s Football Tournament of the 2016 Olympics. Uche says the Falcons  took the Equato Guineans for granted. Many Nigerians believe the loss of the team’s media officer before the first leg clash affected the team while other Nigerians are of the opinion that the sack of Edwin Okon was done at the wrong time.

The former Bayelsa Queens coach disagrees with those views and thinks the Falcons dominance in Africa has been broken by other teams. Uche added that the female league in Nigeria is blessed with talented players to represent the country as against the believe that the absence of 5 key players affected the team’s performance.
