The association urged Rivers Angels to remain focused and not underestimate their opponents in the final, emphasising the importance of lifting the trophy to redeem their image after narrowly missing out on the CAF Women Champions League qualification.

This is the time to redeem your image as you narrowly failed to win the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Super Six League,” part of the statement said.
