As almost all national women’s teams commence qualification battles for major continental and global championship, National Women’s Teams Coordinator, Aisha Falode, has charged all the teams to gird their loins as excuses will not be permitted in the New Year.
Falode, who has been speaking to the coaching crew and players of all the teams, said with her appointment by the NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, she has the full mandate to motivate and ensure that women football at the national level return to its dominant position not only in Africa , but as one of the best in the world.
“My interaction with the teams has been wonderful, all the players and coaches on ground so far want to win and I know the NFF will also appoint coaches for the senior national team who want to win, so for us at the Women football level, it’s a win, win situation, because we want to return to the pinnacle of football in the world.
The CAF Media Committee member, whose amazing pedigree in women’s football has never been in doubt, declared that she will go out of he way to pull strings at the NFA and if possible, the corporate world to ensure that Nigerian women teams qualify and perform well at all major international championship.
“We won’t be distracted and the girls know that we have a mission to take women’s soccer not only to the height it was before now but better and the NFF has assured us of total support.
