Former Nigerian goalkeeper, Dosu Joseph believes the Super Falcons friendly game against USA will help the team prepare properly for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup slated for Australia and New Zealand.
Recall that Nigeria failed to win a medal at the just concluded 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations, where the team failed to defend their crown.
The Super Falcons lost 1-0 to Zambia in the Third-Place match after losing 5-4 on penalties to Morocco in the Semi-Final.
However, with just few months to the clash against the World champions, Dosu in a chat with Completesports.com stated that the game will help the coach, Randy Waldrum to further identify the strengths and weaknesses of the team.
“The 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations has come and gone and focus now should be on how to prepare the team for the 2023 Women’s World Cup
“I really don’t think the team needs to be overhaul even though I know few changes will be done before the competition. However, the friendly game against USA will further help the coach to identify the strength and weaknesses of his team.
“This will now afford him the opportunity to make amendment that will improve the team.”
The first friendly, according to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), will take place at the Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas on September 3rd.
The second duel between both countries will hold three days later at the Audi Field in Washington D.C.
