2023 Women’s World Cup: Australia Will Be Tough, But We Are Ready – Ebi


Ahead of the second group B match against Australia, Nigeria’s Super Falcons captain Onome Ebi has said they are ready for the game.

The Nigerian side proved the bookmakers wrong by securing a valuable goalless draw against the Olympic champion Canada in their opening game.

Ebi during her chat with the NFF media, admitted how tough the game against Australia will be but believe they have what it takes to get a positive result from the game.

“We are in very high spirits, I can tell you.

“It is the day after that massive point and we are already looking forward to our second match.

“The Aussies will not be easy, but we knew before arriving in Australia that no team at this tournament will be easy.”

“We have a huge chance and all it takes to do very well in the tournament.

“When it comes to experience, speedy players, young players, strong players — we have all it takes to make a difference.

“With the calibre of players we have, our fans should expect a lot from us.

“We are ready to give all we’ve got to make this one of our best”, she said.
