Nigeria Have Quality To Reach World Cup Semi-Final, Says Falcons Captain

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Super Falcons skipper Onome Ebi maintains the team has the quality to reach the semi-final of the 2023 Women’s World Cup. 

Nigeria, who have been present at the competition since its inception in 1991, has managed one quarter-final outing in the tournament. That was in 1999.

Despite this, the Abia Angels star believes the record African title holders can go all the way to the last four of the Australia/New Zealand soccer fiesta.

“Honestly, I will say this is the best of my time with the Super Falcons. I have had good moments but right now is the best because the calibre of players we have in the team is what I cannot explain,” Onome, who will be making her sixth World Cup appearance, told Channels Television’s Sports Tonight  on Friday.

“I will always say this, we are not going there to go and just play. We are going there to be among the four best.”

“I am saying it with all confidence because of the kind of players we have now – young, fast – and players that are top in their leagues right now. And we have experience players as well. So, any kind of player you are looking for, we have them on the team. So, tell me, how will somebody be scared while having this kind of team?”

She hailed the unity in the Super Falcons’ team, saying the mood in the side gives them big confidence that they would do well at the World Cup.

“Right now, our team is like one of the best and most united teams so far,” she said. “We are so united in the team right now and the spirit of the team is so high”.

“The last game we played, honestly speaking, nobody believed that game will turn out like that,” the defender added.
