“It is a tough group. You can see that even the Americans are calling it the most difficult group in the competition.
“However, our pledge to give the Super Falcons the best high –performance preparation possible is intact. They will go to a very good environment for their final camping programme and be engaged in quality friendly matches before the finals,” Pinnick reassured.
Nigeria’s senior women’s team won a seventh African title in Namibia in October and will be expected to fly Africa’s flag high in North America.
“It is important that we exceed our previous best performance of a quarter –final berth. Having dominated Africa ceaselessly, it is time that we begin to dominate the world.
“We certainly have the players who can stand up to the best in the universe, as shown by the U-20 girls in the same Canadian nation in August this year. What the team needs now are matches against some of the best teams in the world and exposure to the best tactical and training programmes available.”
