In the absence of quality friendly matches and short preparation time, the Super Falcons will be looking towards the intensity of their training regime across 10 days to whip them into solid shape.
"The (training) sessions have been intense, motivating, and okay." Said Captain Onome Ebi recently.
Despite the war of words between coach Randy Waldrum and the NFF recently as they continue to wash their dirty laundry in public, Ebi maintains that morale among the players in camp is very high .
"The girls are in good shape, in good spirits, and ready to go," she said. "The training speaks for itself as regards the mood in camp because this is what I bargained for."
As per their tactical preparedness for the gruelling tasks ahead, Ebi said: "The players are meeting up with physical and tactical aspects of training; the mood is okay.”
The video montage shown on the NFF twitter handle of the players' training session shows a team working assiduously and tirelessly to be in tip-top physical and mental state.
It remains to be seen which formation Randy will deploy in their first game: the more open and offensive 4-3-3 or the more defensive and pragmatic 5-3-2.
Will the Super Falcons deploy long ball strategy or will they seek to slug it out on grass? Will they sit back, soak pressure to hit on the break or will they seek to go toe-to-toe with their adversaries?
Will Oparanozie earn a starting berth or will Onumonu (who has been underwhelming in front of goal for club and country recently) retain her Waldrum’s faith?
How will the likes of Imuran, Echegini, Abiodun, Demehin and Gift Monday adapt to this level of football?
Will Michelle Alozie be a liability in defence or has she beefed up her defensive paraphernalia?
The anticipation is crippling; the tension is palpable.
The Super Falcons continue with their training sessions. All eyes on Fitness Trainer Kylie Quigley to do his magic on the girls.
Good luck Super Falcons!
