Following a lone goal defeat to their Ghanaian counterparts in Accra on Sunday, the Nigeria Football Federation congratulated the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons, on reaching the final round of the qualification series for next year’s Women African Cup of Nations finals, which will be held in Morocco.
Dr Mohammed Sanusi, the NFF’s General Secretary, claimed that the team’s overall output throughout the two legs of the match with the Black Queens can be improved, and that the NFF has made measures to re-energize the team technically and strengthen the playing physique.
“Let me begin by congratulating the team on their triumph over Ghana’s Black Queens. Given the 70-year rivalry between our two countries in the game, it was a particularly lovely moment. Nonetheless, there are flaws that must be addressed directly and without ambiguity in order for the team to be prepared for the difficulties ahead.
“The Super Falcons are capable of, and should be capable of, far better marksmanship. We have the talent at home and abroad to outrun and outplay any African squad, and even compete favorably on the international level. That is why, ahead of the final round of qualifiers against Cote d’Ivoire, we must take steps to re-energize the team. The goal of the rejuvenation is to improve focus, commitment, and productivity.”
In the second round of the qualifications, Nigeria will face Cote d’lvoire.
