The team won’t take Cape Verde lightly in the opening leg of the 2024 Women Africa Cup of Nations final round qualifier, according to Super Falcons forward Toni Payne.
The football player, who currently plays forward for Sevilla FC, expressed optimism that the Super Falcons will be able to secure the necessary outcome in this match.
She said that even though some players have withdrawn, the team still has talented players who can perform well, and she urged supporters to show up in large numbers to support them.
She said: “We are ready to take on the next opponents for the qualifiers.
“We haven’t played Cape Verde and definitely can’t take them for granted. All teams are improving and we have to play our best.
“It’s unfortunate not to have our players in the team for this camp but we also have good players like Gift Monday and Uchenna Kanu.
“I think we are very confident going into this match.
“Nigerians should come out and support us. We will build on what we have done last time and put out a good performance.”
The Super Falcons will play their Cape Verdean opponents in Morocco before to the 13th iteration of Africa’s premier women’s football competition.pl
