Super Falcons goalkeeper, Tochukwu Oluehi, has expressed confidence that the team will go far at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
The 31-year-old said the quality of preparation the team have received will help them do well at the global showpiece.
Falcons are currently in a tour of Spain, and will battle Canada in a friendly at the Pinatar Stadium in Murcia on Monday.
They have participated in two invitational tournaments this year in China and Cyprus.
The African champions are in Group A with hosts, France, 1995 champions, Norway, as well as Korea Republic.
Oluehi, who was voted the best goalkeeper at the 2018 AWCON in Ghana, said Falcons are ready to shock the world at the Mundial.
“The truth is I see us doing well in France. I am very happy and satisfied with the preparation that we are getting. From China to Cyprus, and now here in Spain, ” she said.
“I see the Super Falcons going very far in France. For any team to be at the world cup, it means they are not a minor team. We will give equal respect to the teams we will play but for a team like France, they will have the support of a whole nation and will enjoy it but i have faith in my teammates and what we can do.”
Nigeria will open their campaign against Norway on June 8, before they will lock horns with Korea on June 12. The team will then play their final group game against France on June 17.
