NFF plans to rebuild Super Falcons

Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation, Sanusi Mohammed, has revealed that the nation’s football body has not forgotten the country’s senior women national team.The reigning champions who will commence qualifiers to defend their 2014 Africa Women Cup of Nations title on April 9 are without a coach since September 2015, with the NFF insisting that it is searching for a new handler. Nigeria will face Senegal or Guinea in the second round of the qualifier of the championship billed for Cameroon in December.

The Super Falcons won a record seventh AWC title in Namibia in October 2014 under Coach Edwin Okon, who was axed for failing to get the team out of the group stage of the Canada 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

His assistant, Danjuma Christopher, was kicked out after the team failed to secure a ticket to the Olympic at the 2015 All Africa Games.

However, Sanusi has appealed for patience and has promised that a recovering development plans are in place to resuscitate the highly rated Falcons.

“For the Super Falcons, we have not forgotten about them,” Sanusi said.
