Super Falcons and Leicester City defender, Ashleigh Plumptre has expressed optimism that the Super Falcons will make a magnificent performance at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Ashleigh Plumptre, who made her senior Nigeria debut in February 2022, disclosed this to the newsmen.
The Super Falcons are among the 32 countries that will compete for honours in Australia and New Zealand this summer.
The Super Falcons will face co-hosts Australia, Canada and the Republic of Ireland in the Group B stage.
According to her “Obviously we’ve got our eyes set on the summer but right now we’re trying to just put little details into practice and make sure that come the summer the team is ready to perform.
“Yeah we know we’re obviously against really good competition, we definitely can’t look past that. Pressure is on the likes of Canada and Australia and I know we have some amazing talent in this team, so we’re definitely going to put in some good performances and I think we can cause some couple of upsets,” Plumptre said.
Meanwhile, the team will face New Zealand in another friendly on Tuesday.
