NFF board member and current chairperson of the NWPFL, Aisha Falode has submitted that it is up to the Super Falcons to excel at the tournament as everything in terms of preparation and motivation has been provided them by the NFF.
Already, the Falcons have participated in tune-up tournaments in China, Cyprus, and Spain, and pundits already rate the Class of 2019 as the side that has been afforded the best preparation for the World Cup finals by the nation’s football –the governing body.
Speaking with www.brila.net, Falode added that she is also hoping that coach Thomas Dennerby wanting to prove himself during the campaign will serve as a motivation for him to lead the girls to glory.
“What the federation has done is to ensure that the preparation has been intense as well as elaborate, what they are supposed to do, they have done”.
“Also the motivation needed has also been given, especially the environment needed to excel has also been given to them”.
“We also have a coach who has a name to protect as well as a tournament such as a world cup to add to his resume”.
“If you put all these together, we can only hope the girls, the Super Falcons will have the wings to fly in France come this summer”.
Meanwhile, the Super Falcons of Nigeria will contend with Burkina Faso, the Niger Republic and Mali in the group phase of this year’s WAFU B Women’s Tournament taking place in Abidjan, 8th – 18th May.
Next month’s tournament will serve as the last preparatory competition for the Super Falcons before they fly to their final camp in Austria ahead of the 8thFIFA Women’s World Cup finals in France.
