Super Falcons have made up our minds to put behind them the shock of 1-0 loss to the Banyana Banyana to reach the knockout rounds of the AWCON in Ghana.
Falcons coach Thomas Dennerby said his team have resolved to win their remaining matches as they aim to qualify for next year’s World Cup in France.
On Wednesday, they face rampant Zambia, who tore apart Equatorial Guinea 5-0 in their opening Group B game.
We have ruminated over the defeat and everyone is focused on what we have to do to get to the next stage, Dennerby said.
We will do what ever it takes to win the game against the Zambians, we are working very hard to achieve a win.
Yes we disappointed Nigerians by loosing our first game, but we can promise everybody for a better result in this next match.
We had a very good chat with the players,which we Had to inculcate in our minds and visions what the next match means to the team, for Nigeria and for us to qualify for the World Cup and it starts on Wednesday with a win for Super falcons against Zambia .
It will not be easy, but the players have expressed determination to win every match from this stage so that we can progress and pick a ticket to the FIFA World Cup, as a first objective.
We are the champions and we have to show that spirit of champions from the next match against the Zambians.
The Super Falcons have never failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup, since FIFA launched the global finals in 1991.
Our source in footballlive.ng confirmed that players and team officials have now been paid their daily allowances for the camping programme in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, prior to the tournament, while money is being sourced to offset the allowances for camping in Epe, Lagos State.
It is known that having being defeated by South Africa means the Falcons are not entitled to any match bonus yet in Ghana.
