Multi-award winning Super Falcons legend, Perpetua Nkwocha , is tipping the Nigeria’s women national team to win the 2023 FIFA women’s World Cup.

Nigeria’s Super Falcons will on Friday morning kickstart it’s 2023 FIFA women’s World Cup campaign against Canada. And the team is hoping to break the tides and become the first African team to win a world cup.

For over two weeks, the national team has been camping in Australia. And has gone ahead to play a test game, after having a series of training sessions. During the test game, the former African Champions walloped a ln Australian outfit, Lions FC, scoring eight goals.

A lot of controversies surrounded the Super Falcons outing to the World Cup. First, it started with the humiliating PR between the Nigeria Football Federation NFF, and coach Randy Waldrum. Waldrum had accused the Federation for lack of support, corruption and fraudulent activities. And to an extent, the American tactician, accused the NFF of trying to impose a player he’s not met before on him.

Meanwhile, the NFF through its Director of communications, Ademola Olajire, described Waldrum as a ‘Loudmouth’. Also accusing him of not having the interest of the national team at heart.

And as if that’s not enough, the NFF went further to label coach Randy Waldrum, as the worst coach of the Super Falcons in its history.

Just when that humiliating PR was about to end, speculations spread that the Super Falcons are planning to boycott Canada’s opener. According to sources, NFF said the ladies’ match bonuses will not be paid to them since they will be getting $30,000 from FIFA.

But even in the midst of the back-and-forth, Perpetua Nkwocha, is optimistic the national team will do well. According to the former African Best Female Footballer, now is the time for the Super Falcons to dominate the world.
