Rohr who has spent some time with the team in training believes they have what it takes to win the title.

I have seen a good training match against the boys and I can see the team is better than the last time I saw them. I could see that everyone invited are here: homed –based and overseas –based professionals. And I can see that they work very well with the coach,” the coach said.

I have seen a good organization in the team as well as a good spirit. I told the coach a few things, among these being that she should play simple, to always have the movement and to play together.

I believe they can do it and they will turn out good in the tournament in Cameroon. I think they can win this tournament. Mali is their first game; it is very important to win this game and Ghana won’t be so easy. Kenya, I think normally we will defeat.

The Super Falcons are fit and will fight well for the green and white colors in Cameroon.

Nigeria have been placed in Group B with Ghana, Mali and Kenya in Sunday's draw which held in Yaounde, Cameroon.
