Nigeria   Nigeria: "We no longer have an inferiority complex," said 26-year-old star midfielder Nkiru Okosieme, a veteran of the 1991 and 1995 World Cup squads (0-5-1). Mercy (Marvelous) Akide is an outstanding striker. Kikelomo Ajayi is one of the best two-way left backs in Africa. Goalkeeper Anne Agumanu-Chiejine, 25, has two young daughters and will be in third World Cup. The Super Falcons had a 28-0 goal-differential in qualifying.
