Falcons Will Set New World Cup Record –Goalie

Chimaobi Uchendu

Super Falcons goalkeeper, Precious Dede, has dismissed insinuations   suggesting that Nigeria would struggle to qualify from the group phase of this year’s Women’s World Cup, which kicks off June 6 in Canada.

Nigeria face former world champions USA, Sweden and Australia in the group stage of the tournament. The Super Falcons begin their campaign against Sweden on June 8 at the Winnipeg Stadium, with their best-ever performance being a place in the quarter-finals in 1999.

“I am confident that we would do well at the World Cup,” stated Dede.

“We have a collection of young players who are doing very well presently and with experience from some of us, I am sure we can surpass our previous outings by doing even better at this World Cup.”

The Falcons left for Toronto, Canada, Tuesday for a two-week conditioning camp ahead of the World Cup. A total of 26 players were on the flight to Canada.
