                    <div class="post-body-inner">Super Falcons Head Coach Thomas Dennerby says the Nigeria’s senior women football team will not only advance from the group stage of the World Cup in France, but will work  hard at reaching a new height in the tournament billed for July, <strong><em></em></strong> reports.  

“We know we are in a very tough group that comprises the host nation France, Norway and Korea. They are all ahead of Nigeria in women football by FIFA ranking. But ranking does not count when it comes to a competitive match. The Super Falcons will try to hold their own against them,” Dennerby said.

“It is true that we have been performing below expectation, but I must tell you, the team is improving very well. Some of the players have not been training day to day because their clubs are either on break or for some other reasons. I am not bothered about the team now because we are improving everyday.
