Super Falcons Chief Coach Edwin Okon is happy that they have the friendly match against Cameroon to prepare for the AWC qualifier against Rwanda.
According to Coach Okon, Cameroon will hopefully give the Falcons the kind of tough game they need to face Rwanda, adding that if they beat the Cameroonians, then it means we can beat the Rwandans.
“I don’t really know the Rwandans well and I don’t have their dossier or the video clips of their matches but my bosses in the office have assured me they would make it available to us.
“We are taking it one step at a time. What is on our mind now is the friendly where we hope to see the players in a match situation. The friendly match comes next week and it is the friendly that will determine if we will need the services of foreign professionals”, he stated
Meanwhile, two players were decamped in line with the elimination by substitution method of coach Okon. Glory Ogbonna of Ibom Angels and Racheal Akpojortor of Nasarawa Amazons where replaced by Lilian Tule and Anam Imoh from Taraba Queens and Amarachi Okoronkwo from Nasarawa Amazons.
The new players joined the rest of the girls for the Tuesday training. Asisat Oshoala and Uchechi Sunday are also expected to join the camp by Wednesday.
