President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has challenged the Super Falcons to prove their class as the best team in Africa once again.
The Super Falcons have won the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations title nine times and are one of the favourites to claim the trophy in Morocco.
Randy Waldrum’s side endured a tough qualifying campaign edging out Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire, two of the strongest teams on the continent.
The West Africans will face South Africa, Burundi and Bostwana in Group C in Morocco.
“It is not much for me to tell you about the need to go all out there and conquer; it is something you are used to because you have the spirit, the energy and the aura of champions, “Pinnick told the players on the eve of their departure for Morocco.
“You have won this trophy nine times out of 11 and you have to go for the 10th with equal passion and desire.
“Surely, there will be teams that would believe they can topple you from your throne; from your position as champions. I have no doubt that you have the capacity to deal with every opposition and emerge champions once more.”
