Super Falcons forward Francisca Ordega believes the African champions will bounce back from their recent set backs and qualify for the African women’s cup of Nations next year.
Ordega also revealed that the team is not divided after the much publicized captaincy saga.
After a second round elimination at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Falcons failed to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
“I have heard and read people blaming our exit on crisis and infighting in our team, but I want to state it clearly here that there is no crisis in Super Falcons.
“We are united and it is not true that in-fighting and crisis in camp caused us our Olympic Games ticket.
“It is not true, we lost because we failed to score in Lagos. On a good day, we should have beaten the Ivorians hands down,” Ordega said.
Ordega, meanwhile, predicted that the team will bounce back stronger to retain the Africa women’s Cup of Nations title next year.
“We will go out to appease our fans and Nigerians by qualifying with ease and going ahead to retain the trophy we won in Ghana last year,” she concluded.
