Nigeria’s Super Falcons are ready to reclaim their Women’s Africa Cup of Nations, WAFCON title in Morocco next year, NFF President, Ibrahim Gusau has said.

Mr Gusau who disclosed this following the team’s 5-0 demolition of Cape Verde in the first leg final round of the 2024 WAFCON in Abuja on Thursday anchored his disposition on the team’s performance at the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand

“Last year, they (Super Falcons) could not even make the podium at the Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco. But they put that adversity behind them and rose to impress the world at the FIFA World Cup. I believe they are ready for the challenge of reclaiming the African title in the same North African country next year,” he said on Friday.

The President who lauded the team’s performances in their last two matches expressed optimism that they will qualify for the WAFCON next year as they will “finish the job” in Cape Verde when they travel for the return leg on Wednesday.

“The Super Falcons are the most successful national team and they deserve all the accolades. In their last two matches, they have scored nine goals to put smiles on the faces of Nigerians. I believe they will go to Cape Verde and finish the job brilliantly, and we also have confidence in them to earn the Olympic ticket this time, after our country missed the last three Women Olympic Football Tournaments.”

Both teams will clash in the second leg in Praia, capital of Cape Verde on Tuesday, 5th December.

Meanwhile, Super Falcons had their first training on Sunday at the Estadio Nacional Cape Vade.
