Dennerby: It Was Tough Picking Our Final 21 Squad

“I think that we really have a good mix of experienced players and younger players with good spirit,” Dennerby told Goal.
“We also have a really good squad if you look to the skills or players. We have players with very high speed and playing vision and game reading and strong players.

Super Falcons National team Coach, Thomas Dennerby has revealed How tough for him to pick his final Squad for the AWCON tournament in Ghana next week.

Dennerby who picked his final 21  squad on  Wednesday said he had sleepless nights picking his final Squad due to the pool of experience players Nigeria had.

“It was good to finally pick the final 21-player squad. The last night before always picking the squad is always a sleepless night.
“It was tough because we have a lot of good footballers and for the coach, it is good when it is really tough. It is always tougher for the coaching staff to make the decision pick the squad.
“That’s the rules, we can only go with 21 players. We have to pick different player type, different personalities and different experienced and inexperienced players. I think we have a good mix.
“If I and my coaching staff around me think that they could probably do better, we would have of course bring them.
“But now we decided to bring those we think have the best opportunity to make the team have a successful tournament. We think that these 21 are the best for the moment.”

The Super Falcons who will looking forward for thier nine continental tittles are in group B with South Africa, Zambia and Equatorial Guinea which was reinstated by CAF.
