The competition scheduled for Costa Rica will hold from March 15 to April 4 in four cities in the host country with 16 countries participating.
Falode told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone that she was optimistic the team would succeed even though they had been placed in a tough group.
NAN reports that the Flamingoes would play in Group D with China Peoples Republic, Mexico and Colombia in the finals of the competition.
“Nigeria has a strong pedigree in women football, so is China, Mexico also, and Colombia. So we are as hopeful as the other teams are.
“I think at the end of the day, they would work to also justify the expectations of all the other teams.
“We know that China has a very vibrant youth development team that includes women, Mexico play in the American women’s league which is very vibrant and competitive.
“Colombia also has a vibrant league. I think the future of any national team be it men or women, is indeed in their league.
“We have to help the women’s national league to begin to produce the kind of quality players that Nigeria had had in the past, both for the Flamingoes, the Falconets and the Super Falcons.
The coordinator appealed to private companies to partner with the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) for the development of female football league in the country. (NAN)
