The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is ready to overhaul the senior women’s national team, the Super Falcons, following recent poor results.

The federation issued a press statement yesterday congratulating the Super Falcons on reaching the final round of the qualification campaign for the Women Africa Cup of Nations (AWCON) billed for Morocco next year.

Following a 2-0 triumph over the Black Queens of Ghana in the first round, the nine-time African champions lost 1-0 in the reverse fixture in Accra, but advanced on a 2-1 aggregate.

As a result, the NFF’s General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, has announced that the Nigerian football governing body has finalized plans to re-energize the technical team while also strengthening the playing body

“I will start by congratulating the team for the victory over the Black Queens of Ghana. Notwithstanding, there are deficiencies that we must deal with squarely and without any ambiguity in order that the team will be ready for the challenges ahead.

“The Super Falcons can, and should, exhibit far greater marksmanship. That is why we have to make the move to reinvigorate the team ahead of the final round of qualifiers against Cote d’Ivoire. The rejuvenation is with an objective for better focus, commitment and productivity.”

The Super Falcons have played a total of 10 games this year and have won just six of them with losses coming in the Aisha Buhari Cup final against South Africa, USA and Jamaica in a freindly and recently against Ghana in the AWCON qualifier.
