Randy Waldrum, the head coach of the Super Falcons, is convinced that his team can once again rule Africa.
Today (Monday) will mark the start of the defending champions’ title defense against one of the tournament favourites, Banyana Banyana of South Africa.
With nine previous victories, the Nigerian women have dominated the competition.
Waldrum believes the Super Falcons can capture their tenth championship in Morocco.
“Naturally, this is a very big game and we are looking forward to it. It is also a game that should be a good advertisement for African women football. When you have Nigeria playing South Africa at the senior women level, it is a treat,” Waldrum told thenff.com.
“Our objectives and expectations remain the same: to earn a ticket to the World Cup and to win the trophy. We will take it one match at a time. It is interesting to play South Africa first, and we can move ahead from there.”
The match at the Moulay Hassan Stadium in Rabat will begin at 6 o’clock Nigerian time.
