Elegbeleye told newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja that the senior national female football team would beat their Malian counterparts home and away.
He said he was sure the Super Falcons would overcome their opponents considering the calibre of players and quality of the technical crew.
“They are the current African champions and I don’t see Mali as a problem.
“I am sure they will beat Mali home and away, looking at the calibre of players and the members of the technical crew,” Elegbeleye said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Super Falcons will face their Malian counterparts in the first leg match of the AAG qualifiers on Saturday in Mali.
They will thereafter host the Malians in the return leg match two weeks later.
Also speaking, the team’s Media Officer, Gracious Akujobi, said the players were aware that nothing short of victory was expected from them.
“The players know that there is no excuse, we just have to qualify.
“And, qualifying means going to Mali to win and coming back home to put the icing on the cake,” Akujobi said.
NAN reports that the Super Falcons will leave Nigeria on Thursday for the match in Mali.(NAN)
