Christopher Benjamin as been appointed as the head coach of the Nigerian female team, Super Falcons, by the Nigeria Football Federation.
Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu who is the chairman of the NFF Technical and Development committee made this announcement over the weekend in Abuja. He also praised the efforts of the former technical crew headed by Mr. Edwin Okon, saying they did their best within the period they were in charge of the team.
“We commend Okon and his crew for the services rendered to the country, and they did well to reclaim the African Women Championship title for the country in Namibia in October 2014, thus qualifying the team for the Women’s World Cup in Canada.
“The contract given to the crew has elapsed with the Women’s World Cup in Canada. Mr. Christopher Danjuma will now take over the team in acting capacity, pending the appointment of a substantive coaching crew, which process is ongoing.”
The Chairman promised that the NFF will give the new crew all the support they need to qualify the team for the 2016 Olympics to be held in Rio, Brazil.
Danjuma’s first assignment will be to see the Falcons past Equatorial Guinea, with the first leg in Port Harcourt on Saturday, 18th July and the return leg in Bata on 2nd August.
