Super Falcons Edwin Okon has expressed optimism that the team he is building will not only impress at the African Women’s Championship in Namibia but also qualify for the World Cup.

He said the plan is to go to Namibia and win the AWC trophy they lost in 2012 in Equatorial Guinea and qualify for the World Cup in Canada as African champions.

“I am impressed with the way the players have responded to what we have been teaching them and by the time we are through with the rebuilding of the Super Falcons, they will be unstoppable,” Okon said.

“We’ll begin to have a clearer picture of a new Super Falcons after the Cameroon friendly match. I am sure Nigerians will love the new team by the time we are through with the rebuilding process.”

He added that he was aware teams like Ghana, South Africa, Cameroon and defending champions Equatorial Guinea would also be targeting the AWC title, insisting that the Falcons would not lose focus.
