UCL: Osimhen will make difference for Napoli against AC Milan – Lavezzi
The Super Falcons captain, Onome Ebi, says the team is ready to square up against all opposition at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Randy Waldrum’s team has been drawn in the tournament’s toughest group with co-hosts Australia, Olympic champions Canada, and the Republic of Ireland.
Ebi, who is set to participate in her last major competition with the Super Falcons, insisted that they will be up to the task.
The experienced defender claimed her side has experience at this level, which will be crucial in the competition.
“We are aware that we are in a difficult pool." We have the reigning champions, Canada, whom we have faced twice before, losing one and drawing one. Then we have Ireland and Australia, who we have not played against,” Ebi told CAFonline.com.
“We know it will also be very tough against Australia because they will be playing at home." We are under no pressure, however, and we are calm about these matches.
“All of these teams have qualified and earned their right to be at the World Cup." We have to be ready to face them,” the center back added.
The Super Falcons are unbeaten in their last three games.
The nine-time African champions defeated Haiti and New Zealand in their recent friendlies.
West Africans have participated in all editions of the FIFA Women’s World Cup since its inception in 1991.
