Super Falcons will use their training camp in Abuja for their 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign. That is the view of national captain Evelyn Nwabuoku who has in a buoyant mood since the team started preparation for the competition last weekend.
Nwabuoku, a double winner with Rivers Angels in 2014 and also the skipper of the Falcons’ 2014 African Women’s Championship winning team, said that the togetherness in the set-up would stand them in good stead for the forthcoming global soccer showpiece.
Speaking to SL10 , the utility player hailed the entire set up of the team and stressed on the need for support from all.
“The coaching crew have always done their best. Now we need to keep the momentum going.”
She stressed, however, unity and teamwork would be the key and the players have adopted the one team, one country slogan from head coach Edwin Okon.
“There is no special preference, we are all Falcons players fighting to achieve the same goal and that is getting through a tough group where we have USA, Sweden and Australia.
“But things are looking up. The mood in the camp since I arrived has been fantastic.”
“The winning mentality is always there. We just need good preparation and support. We have never doubted our ability as a team.
The former MFK of Finland and Bayelsa Queens of Nigeria star added, “We just have to be given the right exposure. We see this task as an opportunity to announce ourselves to the world not just in Africa.
