The captain of Nigeria’s senior national women's football team, Onome Ebi, says the Super Falcons will be aiming for a semi-final spot at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Ebi, while speaking with NAN following the FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy tour in Abuja on Sunday, said the team’s goal was to better their record at their last outing.

“We are going there to give our best and our target is to at least get to the last four having made it to the round of 16 in our last outing at France in 2019,” she told the News Agency of Nigeria after the World Cup trophy tour in Abuja.

“However, there are no guarantees, we are just going there to play our game. We are working towards it and have been playing several high-profile friendly games.

The ninth FIFA Women’s World Cup will take place in Australia and New Zealand from July 20 to August 20.

Thirty-two countries are participating and have been assembled in eight groups of four teams each.

Nigeria’s Super Falcons are in Group B with Canada, Australia, and the Republic of Ireland.
