Nigeria international Michelle Alozie says the Super Falcons are fully ready on winning their final qualifier and reaching the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.
The nine time continental champions will face Ivory Coast in a two legged clash next year February for a place at the tournament in Morocco.
The Houston Dash star Alozie, who recently took part in a national team training camp in Abuja says, “It was really good to get a full nine days with everyone to prepare for the upcoming games.”
“We had a lot of positives, and it was good to see some new faces from the domestic league in Nigeria. We need to work more together, to get more acclimated to one another, and that is what these camp are for.”
The 24 year old added that, “The team will continue to build for the qualifiers. We know this is a revenge game so we are going to put everything in it.”
“We need to win it. We want to go to AFCON and we want to go to the World Cup so we know what is at stake.”
“This is something I have always wanted to do, I am so happy I have been able to have a few caps as a Super Falcons. I just hope I can continue this journey, it’s amazing.”
Super Falcons narrowly saw off the Black Queens of Ghana in the first round of qualifying in October with a 2-1, and come next year February they must overcome another challenge against Ivory Coast.
The 2023 Women’s World Cup will also be decided in Morocco in July, so it is very important for the Super Falcons to pick a semi finals spot in Morocco for a chance to play at the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
