The Super Falcons have been named the Women’s Team of the Year at the CAF 2023 Awards off the back of an impressive showing at the World Cup earlier in the year.
Nigeria’s brave ladies bowed out of the competition in the round of 16. They lost to England on penalties after normal and extra time ended barren.
Before the defeat, the Super Falcons did not lose a match in their three group games. They drew Olympic champions Canada, shock co-hosts Australia, and settled for a point against the Republic of Ireland.
The Super Falcons beat South Africa and Morocco, fellow World Cup campaigners, for the prize on Monday night. With the win in the Moroccan city of Marrakech, Nigeria are now the most-awarded team in the category having gotten it five times.
