Falcons Defy Rain To Train For Uganda

Ahead of the African Women Championship, AWC, qualifier against Rwanda in Kigali, the Super Falcons on Wednesday evening intensified preparation by defying a heavy downpour to train for two hours at the FIFA Goal Project Pitch of the Abuja National Stadium.
The coaches led by Edwin Okon drilled the girls in the acts of shooting on target, marking, passing and set pieces inside the very wet pitch.
Coach Okon explained the reason he did not stop the training, saying he wanted the players to get used to all weather conditions, believing that it might just be raining in Kigali when they play Rwanda on 24 May.
“Our players are used to playing under very hot condition so it is only wise to allow them train inside the rain as well. We have to prepare for any eventuality. I am happy they could play in the rain”, he stated.
Meanwhile the coach said he is looking forward to playing at least two more test games before they depart for Rwanda for the AWC qualifier in a fortnight.
