In the world of football, every team dreams of making a mark on the biggest stage, and the Super Falcons of Nigeria are no exception. Led by their captain, Onome Ebi, the team is determined to improve on their previous record at the upcoming 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The Super Falcons, who have won the African championship a remarkable nine times, reached the Round of 16 in the last edition of the competition held in France. However, their best performance in the history of the tournament was a quarter-final finish in the 1999 edition.
Ebi, a seasoned defender, expressed her team’s determination to surpass that feat in the upcoming tournament, which will be jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand. Speaking at a farewell dinner organized for the team in Abuja, she confidently stated, “I want to tell Nigerians that we are going to Australia, not just to participate, but to surpass our record in the last outing. I believe we will make Nigerians proud.”
The Super Falcons’ journey in the 2023 Women’s World Cup will begin with a challenging match against Canada at Melbourne’s Rectangular Stadium on Friday, 21 July. They will then face off against co-host nation Australia and the Republic of Ireland on Thursday, 27 July, and Monday, 31 July, respectively, at the Lang Park in Brisbane.
As the team prepares for their battles on the field, they are leaving no stone unturned in their quest for success. The Super Falcons have been training rigorously, honing their skills and tactics to face their opponents head-on. Ebi and her teammates are aware of the challenges ahead but are ready to give their all.
With their collective determination and unwavering spirit, the Super Falcons aim to make a statement in the 2023 Women’s World Cup. They are not just participants; they are warriors ready to fight for victory. Their goal is to surpass their previous achievements and make their nation proud.
As football enthusiasts eagerly await the start of the tournament, all eyes will be on the Super Falcons and their quest for glory. The Nigerian team carries the hopes and dreams of a nation on their shoulders, and they are determined to soar to new heights.
