As the 2023 FIFA Women World Cup is getting closer, Super Falcons defender, Ashleigh Plunptre has insisted that the pressure is not on Nigeri but Australia and Canada.
The Leicester City defender made this statement while speaking on a short video posted on NFF TV.
She further said they have a lot of talented players in the squad and they are capable of causing an upset in the competition.
”I think right now we’re just in a really good position just preparing as we are, here in Turkey.
“We’ve got our eyes set on the summer but right now we’re trying to just put little details into practice and make sure that come the summer the team is ready to perform.
“Yeah we know we’re obviously against really good competition, we definitely can’t look past that.
Pressure is on the likes of Canada and Australia and I know we have some amazing talent in this team, so we’re going to put in some good performances and I think we can cause some couple of upsets”, she said.
Plumptre is expected to be in action on Tuesday when Super Falcons face New Zealand in the second international friendly organised for the team.
