Super Falcons Head Coach Randy Waldrum has expressed optimism about his team's performance ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.

The American tactician is confident that the Falcons will go far at this year's Premier Women's football tournament which will kick start on July 20.

The nine-time African champions secured qualification to the Mundial after making it to the last 4 of the 2022 African Women's Cup of Nations in Morocco.

“I am confident and realistic about this. We have an abundance of talents in the squad and I am convinced they can go that far. This particular team is very talented and has the same ability to go far in the tournament, just like the Class of 1999, Waldrum told NFF TV as quoted by Sports Brief.

“To be able to achieve this and even more, we need to have all players in fit condition, healthy and most importantly have enough time together. If we have enough time together, we have the ability to be successful at the World Cup.”

The 9th edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand from July 20 to August 20.

Nigeria is among the six nations that have qualified for every edition of the Women's World Cup.
