General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Sanusi Mohammed has expressed the optimism that Nigeria’s senior national women football team, the Super Falcons, will eliminate their Ivory Coast counterparts in the final qualifying match for the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.
Sanusi Mohammed told Completesports.com on Tuesday that the federation will do everything humanly possible and within the laws of the game to ensure that the Super Falcons secure a berth at the WAFCON in Morocco next year.
“We are going to work seriously to make sure that we don’t have a repeat of what happened the last time we met when they eliminated Nigeria from the Tokyo Olympic games. We are going to work very hard to ensure that we eliminate Ivory Coast from WAFCOBN,” Sanusi stated.
“We have taken note of some lapses in the Super Falcons team that defeated their Ghanaian counterparts 2-1 over two legs and we shall try to correct them before we play the Ivory Coast women team.
“The team will be rejigged for greater efficiency and better results. We shall carry out a post mortem examination of the Ghana matches with a view to making changes in the team’s set up. It might affect technical, players and backroom staff. We just have to strengthen the team”.
He added: “When the Super Falcons regroup next year, the team will camp for a longer period in preparing for the clash against Ivory Coast. Our coach Randy Waldrum is expected to draw a program that will help both the home and foreign based players gel well before the game,” NFF Chief Scribe stated.
The Super Falcons are expected to play the Lady Elephants of Ivory Coast in the final qualifying matches of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in February 2022.
