The Super Falcons will be looking to defend and get their hands on a ninth AWCON title when it kicks off in Cameroon on Saturday, November 19.

“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.
