The Super Falcons were voted the Women’s Team of the Year at the CAF 2023 Awards, following an excellent performance at the World Cup earlier this year.
Nigeria’s brave ladies were eliminated from the competition in the round of 16. They were defeated by England on penalties after normal and extra time finished in a draw.
The Super Falcons had not lost a match in their previous three group games. They drew Olympic winners Canada, surprised co-hosts Australia, and settled for a point against Ireland.
