AWCON 2016: Nigeria’s Super Falcons ‘ready to crush Kenya’

The Nigeria national women’s team, Super Falcons, will be going for a big win over their Kenyan counterparts in their final group game of the ongoing Africa Women’s Nations Cup taking place in Cameroon.

Media Officer for the Super Falcons, Remi Sulola, said the Nigerian ladies have resolved to post a better performance than they did in their group opener against Mali some days back.

The Falcons, who are gunning for their eighth African title, crushed Mali 6-0, with Arsenal Ladies striker Asisat Oshoala scoring four times.

“The girls are raring to go against Kenya, they said they want to do better against Kenya than they did against Mali,” the Falcons’ team officer said in a radio interview on Saturday.

“Personally, I am expecting like a 8-0 win” she added.

Despite recording a 1-1 draw against Ghana in their last outing, many would agree that debutantes, Kenya, are no match for the highly experienced Super Falcons team who are definitely the face for female football on the African continent.

Also speaking ahead of Saturday’s game against Kenya, Assistant Coach of the Super Falcons, Ann Chiejine, said the Nigerian Ladies will be business-like in their approach in their final group game against the East Africans.

“We are here for business and come Saturday, we will be ready to play against Kenya. The players are looking forward to Saturday’s match. Every team qualified is a good team and we are leaving no stone unturned. We know them (Kenya) and we will play as if it is our first match. Every team is as good as winning the championship,” she said.

On his part, Kenya’s Head Coach, David Ouma, ruled out his girls lying down for the Falcons to roll over.

He said: “Our aim is to take the most from every game. We still have a game against Nigeria and there is nothing like resting key players.

“The players who are fit will play against Nigeria. We have to throw in what we have in the last game.

The Nigeria Vs Kenya game is billed for at the Omni Sports Stadium in Limbe.
