Flamboyant coach of the Super Falcons American Randy Waldrum has been gushing over the ferocious firepower available to his team ahead of July's Women's Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.
Nigeria are in the same group against dubutants Burundi and Botswana after a tricky tie against familiar foes South Africa.
Nigeria are gunning for their 10th title and the right to participate in next year's women's world cup.
Coach Waldrum is in no doubt that his ruthless strike squad have the killer instinct, dynamism and resilience to put the fear of God in the hearts of opposition defenders at the tournament.
"(A striker like) Gift Monday (for example) has been superb in the Nigeria Professional Women's League in the past season and is still playing well as a young player," said coach Waldrum.
"Having Asisat (Oshoala) back healthy is a massive plus (for our forward line). I’m also excited about the young center forward Macleans who’s playing in Poland right now. I think it’s a lot of attacking options to choose from and we have a lot of players that can interchange. Rasheedat (Ajibade) for example has been playing in the midfield for us but could play upfront if we need. Toni Payne is the same. I think we’ve got really good attacking qualities within our team. I’m really happy with that.” Concluded Waldrum.
