Ogunjobi said that the squad has clearly made a statement that indeed they are ready to defend their African crown.

“South Africa is coming out strong in African football and I think this victory today (Sunday) has proved our superiority over them,” Ogunjobi said.

“After the first leg (1-1) draw they still boasted of upstaging us here but now they have been placed where they really belong and I commend the players for a job well done.

“Above all, qualifying for the 2013 AYC is a first step for them to retaining the crown and I believe with hard work they can retain it.”

The Osun State FA Chairman who is also a CAF/FIFA Match Commissioner further stated that Flying Eagles victory and qualification for the 2013 AYC has erased the sad memory of the Flamingoes’ defeat in the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan.
