Super Falcons captain, Onome Ebi is confident that the team can reach the semi-finals of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Sportivationng.com reports.
The Randy Waldrum-led side are preparing for the mundial in Australia and New Zealand with series of friendly matches.
The 39-year-old believes the team can make history in the competition.
“We are going there to give our best and our target is to at least get to the last four having made it to the round of 16 in our last outing at France in 2019.
“However, there are no guarantees, we are just going there to play our game. We are working towards it and have been playing several high-profile friendly games.
“In spite of the fact that the results are not what Nigerians want, I believe our losses will help us get better as we work on our mistakes ahead of the World Cup.
“The World Cup finals is the big target and that’s what we are working for,” she said.
The Super Falcons have been paired with Australia, Canada and Ireland in Group A of the competition which is expected to kickoff in July.
The team crashed out in the round of 16 in the last edition in France.
