Nigeria’s female national team, Super Falcons head coach, Thomas Dennerby has been directed to forward his programme of activities and schedule of plans towards this year’s African Women’s Cup of Nations.
While Confederation of African Football (CAF) are now hunting round for a new venue of the competition, after stripping Ghana o their hosting rights, Dennerby has been urged not to rest on his oars.
This is the verdict of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) executive committee, which stated the Swedish soccer tactician should come up with a preparation programme towards the competition.
The NFF want the Falcons to successfully defend the title they won at the 2016n edition in Cameroon, such that Dennerby is now expected to set preparations in motion towards a glorious outing for Nigeria at the next venue to be picked by CAF.
This was stated in a communiqué issued by the NFF board, after their meeting at The Glasshouse in Abuja on Monday.
It read in part: “(The) Executive Committee directed the Technical and Development Committee to request from the Head Coach of the Super Falcons, Mr. Thomas Dennerby, a comprehensive training/preparation programme towards Nigeria’s successful defence of the Women Africa Cup of Nations title at the 11th Championship scheduled for 17th November – 1st December 2018.
“(The) committee insists that no stone must be left unturned to ensure Nigeria successfully defends the title and qualifies for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals which will be staged in France.”
