Super Falcons

After yesterday’s massive loss by Cote d’Ivoire to Germany, Nigeria’s Super Falcons are set to take on the Swedish Female team in a few hours. The Nigerian team list include: Dede (GK), Edoho, Ohale, Nkwocha, Ebi, Chukwunonye, Sunday, Oshoala, Oparanpzie, Dike, Umotong, Ayinde, Okobi, Nwabuoku, Njoku, Whyte, Ordega, Ayila, Ohadugha, Nku, Ohiaeriaku, Nnodim, and Ebere.

The Edwin Okon coached girls are set to meet an opponent they have met three times in the past. The Nigerian Super Falcons have never beaten the Swedish National team at the senior level. It is hoped that with the current crop of players in the Nigeria squad, this jinx can be broken.

Winning this first game is crucial to both teams as they will be facing the U.S.A and Australia in their next two matches. Winning this first game increases either teams ‘ chances of moving on to the knockout stages.

Africa stands behind the Super Falcons as they file out against the Swedish ladies. Hopefully, the same resilience that saw all four teams representing Africa in the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand qualifying for the round of 16 will help Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon move on to the next round.

Best wishes to you all!
