Nigeria Women's Team profile: key players, full squad list, coach for 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

May 31, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Following a successful Africa Women's Cup of Nations, the Super Falcons will be testing their strength on the world stage this summer.

What is Nigeria's history in the FIFA Women's World Cup?

The Nigeria Women's national team, nicknamed the Super Falcons, will be partaking in the FIFA Women's World Cup for the eighth time. The nine-time African champions have failed to win any of the previous editions and their best-ever finish was registered at the 1999 edition in the United States.

They successfully reached the quarter finals and lost 4-3 to Brazil after extra-time. Relatively, the Super Falcons recorded its worst-ever performance on the world stage in 2003, a campaign where they failed to score a single goal and lost all the three group stage matches.

What is Nigeria's group at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

The champions of Africa are in Group A. For more information and analysis on the Super Flacons' Last 16 qualification chances, check out Group A: France, Nigeria, Norway, South Korea - 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup teams.

What is Nigeria's full squad list for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup?

Goalkeepers: Tochukwu Oluehi, Chiamaka Nnadozie, Alaba Jonathan

Defenders: Osinachi Ohale, Ngozi Ebere, Onome Ebi, Faith Michael, Chidinma Okeke

Midfielders: Amarachi Okoronkwo, Evelyn Nwabuokwu, Rita Chikwelu, Ngozi Okobi-Okeoghene, Halimatu Ayinde, Ogonna Chukwudi

Forwards: Anam Imo, Asisat Oshoala, Desire Oparanozie, Chinaza Uchendu, Uchenna Kanu, Rasheedat Ajibade, Francisca Ordega, Chinwendu Ihezo, Alice Ogebe

Who are the key players to watch for Nigeria at the FIFA Women's World Cup?

2017 African Footballer of the Year Asisat Oshoala enjoyed a successful spell at the 2018 AWCON held in Ghana and subsequently completed a switch to Barcelona Femeni in Spain.

The 24-year-old forward helped the Spanish giants to finish second behind eventual champions Atletico Madrid in the race for the 2018/19 Liga Iberdrola title.

Francisca Ordega, Onome Ebi and Tochukwu Oluehi are also among the notable names that could spark an inspiring campaign at the Women's World Cup for Nigeria. Ebi and Oluhei were named in the best 11 of last year's Africa Women's Cup of Nations in Ghana while Ordega made the substitute team alongside Oshoala.

Who is the Nigeria Women's team head coach?

Thomas Dennerby is the current head coach of the Nigeria Women's national team. The 59-years-old Swede represented Hammarby IF and Sparvagens IF in his playing days between 1977 and 1987.

He managed the two clubs alongside Djugarden in his home country before being appointed as head coach of the Sweden women's team in 2005. After a seven-year spell with the national team, Dennerby returned to Hammarby in 2013 and was appointed as head coach of the Nigeria women's team in January 2018.

He led the Super Falcons to their ninth African championship title in Ghana almost 11 months after his appointment.
