Nigeria’s women’s national team coach Uche Eucharia has made it clear that the Super Falcons have only one objective at the African Women Championship; to recapture the crown they lost last tournament at Equatorial Guinea.
Uche’s team played out a 2-2 draw against an Under-17 boys team in Abuja on Sunday and Uche says her wards are ready.
“We are not just going there to participate; we are not only going there to qualify for the World Cup. We are going there to win the trophy. If these girls can run the way they did against a strong boys team like this, it how’s they can do even better against girls.”
Uche has named an experienced squad sprinkled with players from the Under-17 and Under-20 teams which made a splash at their respective World Cup tournaments earlier this year, and says she is confident that her team will be the best in.
