Super Falcons coach, Edwin Okon, has boasted that his team will win the African Women Championship, AWC, for the 7th time by beating Cameroon in the final on Saturday.
Speaking to journalists after a hard fought victory over South Africa in the first semi final at the Sam Nujoma stadium in Windhoek Namibia, Okon stated that Super Falcons from the on set have made up their mind to beat any side to reclaim the title they lost two years ago
“From the on set, we said it that we shall take the teams as they come. We did not care who we play in the final because we prepared to play who ever and we are ready to beat Cameroon in the final of the AWC.
“South Africa gave us a big scare but we were unlucky not to score more than two goals in the first half. The final with Cameroon will be tougher but we shall also raise our game to beat them and reclaim the title.
“We lost to them in the third place match in Equatorial Guinea and I will not say we are seeking revenge but we want to reclaim the title. The harder they come the harder they fall. Nigerians should count on us,” he said
Also speaking, the Most Valuable Player in the match against South Africa,Asisat Oshoala, expressed gratitude to God for giving us victory over South Africa stressing that it was not an easy win
“We are happy to reach the final and by the Grace of God, we shall reclaim the title. I thank God for giving me those goals that gave us the win and if I get the chance to score again in the final, I will gladly take it but it does not matter who score so long as we win the cup,” he stressed.
The Golden shoe and golden ball winner at this year’s FIFA U-20 women World Cup said she was not under any pressure to score in the final adding that the Super Falcons are blessed with plenty of goal bangers who can score vital goals to win.
