As reaction continue trailing the Super Falcons’ laboured conquest of the 11th African Women Cup of Nations, the chairman of Nigerian Football Supporters Club in South Africa, Osita Okeke has called for a thorough reorganization of the nine time champions.
Footballlive.ng can report that Okeke was nervous all through the AWCON 2018 final, in which South Africa tried to beat Nigeria for the second time in the same competition hosted by Ghana.
He has now opined that the Falcons need an injection of new players, in order for the team to be solid and better before the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
Okeke also urged Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to start early preparations of the team for the World Cup, which he said they should do by organising international friendly matches for the squad.
He commended the NFF for paying the players their bonuses as at when due, throughout the tournament in Ghana, but stressed that there is a need for the team’s handlers to reorganise the squad.
The supporters’ boss in South Africa said Nigeria can achieve success at France 2019 if the Falcons’ handlers introduce young, determined and talented players into the team.
Okeke added: “We rejoice with Nigerians on the spectacular victory by the Falcons.
“Winning the African women’s football title nine times is not easy, but we appeal to the handlers of the team to take stock of the tournament and reorganise the team.
“We observed during the tournament that some of the Super Falcons players are no longer young.
“So, it is important to introduce new players into the team before the World Cup.”
