President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has tasked the Super Falcons to win their 10th African title when they participate in the 12th Women Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco next month.
The Falcons are three-time defending champions, having most recently won the competition consecutively in 2014, 2016 and 2018.
Pinnick who disclosed this before the team’s departure to Morocco said,” There is not much for me to tell you about the need to go all out there and conquer; it is something you are used to because you have the spirit, the energy and the aura of champions. You have won this trophy nine times out of 11 and you have to go for the 10th with equal passion and desire.
“Surely, there will be teams that would believe they can topple you from your throne; from your position as champions. I have no doubt that you have the capacity to deal with every opposition and emerge champions once more.”
The Falcons arrived in Rabat on Monday where the team will camp for seven days before their crunch opening match of Group C against South Africa in the same city at the Stade Prince Moulay EL Hassan in Rabat on July 4.
The Falcons will also play Botswana three days later before taking on Burundi on July 10 in the group phase.
The top two sides will automatically qualify for the quarter-finals, while the two best third-placed teams will also join the last-eight stage.
