Abuja - Ahead of next month's 10th Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) in Cameroon, Super Falcons head coach, Florence Omagbemi has assured Nigerians that the Falcons will do everything humanly possible to retain the continental title.

The Super Falcons are the record holders in Africa, winning the title seven times out of the previous nine editions.

Although, the foreign -based players are yet to arrive camp, Omagbemi revealed that she is happy with the form of the team so far.

"I am impressed with the sessions I have had with the ladies since I got in. It's a process and we just started. We want to build from where we stopped from the qualifiers because I still have the players we used to execute those matches. Just waiting for the foreign -based to join the team ‎and we will continue.

"When we get to Cameroon‎ we will take each and every of our matches one at a time, but right now the main objective is to prepare the team well for the tournament. I know that everyone is expecting us to go to Cameroon to do well. By God's grace, with sound preparation we will do well," Omagbemi concluded.
