The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has congratulated the Senior Women National Team, the Super Falcons, on their qualification for next year’s Women African Cup of Nations finals scheduled for Morocco after a 1-0 defeat to Ghana on Sunday rendered a 2-1 aggregate victory for Nigeria against Ghana.

The NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi however said there is room for improvement in the team’s entire output over the two legs of the fixture with the Black Queens, and the NFF has made arrangements to reenergize the team technically and to strengthen the playing body.

“I will start by congratulating the team for the victory over the Black Queens of Ghana. It was a sweet one given the rivalry between our two countries in the game, which dates back to 70 years. Notwithstanding, there are deficiencies that we must deal with squarely and without any ambiguity in order that the team will be ready for the challenges ahead.

“The Super Falcons can, and should, exhibit far greater marksmanship. We have the players at home and abroad to outrun and outplay any team on the African continent, and even compete favourably on the world stage. That is why we have to make the move to reinvigorate the team ahead of the final round of qualifiers against Cote d’Ivoire. The rejuvenation is with an objective for better focus, commitment and productivity.”

Nigeria will face Cote d’Ivoire in the second round of the qualifiers.
