Former goal keeper of the Super Falcons, Anne Chiejine, has urged the current squad to remain positive and give their best in their opening World Cup match against Norway.
In a video message through Twitter, Chiejine said determination, belief and self-confidence should see the Nigerian side emerge victorious.
Chiejine appeared in four World Cups for Nigeria as the undisputed number one in goal.

Chiejine knows all about the Norwegians.
She was in goal for Nigeria when the Falcons suffered a never-to-be-forgotten 8-0 whitewash at the 1995 World Cup held in Sweden.
The Norwegians won that tournament, but 24 years on, so much has changed as the Falcons appear set to correct that disastrous result with a different outcome tonight.
