Nigeria is drawn for the 2015 FIFA Women World Cup against USA, Sweden and Australia in a group described as tough.
Super Falcons wil get best high –performance preparation - NFF President
President assures of total commitment to ensure Nigeria surpasses first round elimination record at previous tournaments
The Super Falcons again will face the Americans and Swedes who have been hard nuts for Nigeria, but this time, the NFF says it will put in evertything to ensure the seven time African champions do well
“It is a tough group. You can see that even the Americans are calling it the most difficult group in the competition.
“However, our pledge to give the Super Falcons the best high –performance preparation possible is intact. They will go to a very good environment for their final camping programme and be engaged in quality friendly matches before the finals,” Pinnick reassured.
“It is important that we exceed our previous best performance of a quarter –final berth. Having dominated Africa ceaselessly, it is time that we begin to dominate the world.
“We certainly have the players who can stand up to the best in the universe, as shown by the U-20 girls in the same Canadian nation in August this year. What the team needs now are matches against some of the best teams in the world and exposure to the best tactical and training programmes available.”
The competition kicks off on June 6 and ends on July 5.
