Technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Augustine Eguavoen is confident the Super Falcons will make a big impact at 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The nine-time African champions will be making their 10th appearance at the World Cup.

Randy Waldrum’s side will face olympic champions Canada, co-hosts Australia and Republic of Ireland in a difficult group.

“I’m very optimistic that they will perform well,” Eguavoen told reporters.

“The first game is always very important, the first game will determine how far we will go.

“Because if anything goes wrong in the first game, then the team becomes jittery, but with the quality of players we have, I think they are good enough to handle any kind of pressure and I’m looking at a very good performance.”

The Super Falcons will begin their campaign against Canada at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium on Thursday.

The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup which will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand will run from July 20 to August 20.

    Pay outstanding bonuses and allowances first. The Super Falcons are professionals and not a secondary school team

    People should not mind Eguavoen. He has always mouthed off. He should learn to be quiet as he does not know what he is saying half of the times.

    Good performance without a good preparation?Strange!Well never say never Nigerian teams are full of surprises.
    But if you want a good performance you should invest well by preparing well,you don’t reap where you do not sow.

    Hello Nigerian Brother, I am sure you have competent Ex players who are capable of being technical directors, as far as Equaven is concern he is a disaster in the making the only thing he is good at talking rubbish thank for you time and good luck in your campaign for 2026 World Cup.

    This your talk is just too cheap, especially at a time like this.

    What Super Falcons are you actually talking about? The motivated or the demoralized ones?

    Are you still bold enough to talk in this manner about the same Super Falcons you are owing more than two years in salaries, bonuses and entitlements?

    FIFA sent a huge sum for adequate preparation for the world cup, the NFF and Sports ministry decided to pocket it without reckoning with the players’ welfare at all

    Actually, there should be little or no expectations. All the players have to play for is just their careers, integrity, professionalism and passion for the country

    Even the coach came out pulling the NFF in between the legs, raising several issues pertaining to the general welfare of the team. He is still being owed several months aw well. He said he would have walked away from the job a long time ago if not for the players’ commitment and passion
