Super Falcons Too Hot For Shepolopolo of Zambia

The Super Falcons of Nigeria were too hot experience for the copper Queens of Zambia in the second group games at the Cape coast Stadium.


The Super Falcons of Nigeria who got  their first win of the ongoing African Women Cup of Nations to keep their hopes of qualification alive by beating Zambia 4-0 by courtesy of goals from Oparanozie, Ordega, Rasheedat and Amarchi..

Speaking at the post match press conference room of the Cape Coast Stadium, Coach Thomas Dernneby said he’s happy with the result but feel the team should have scored more goals, nevertheless he is happy with the result.

” I’m very happy we managed the game and to score four goals is very good, but honestly if there is something with the game I’m not 100 happy about is that we should have scored more goals, all the same it’s a good result.”

Coach Dernneby spoke of experience as the key factor in muscling out the Copper Queens of Zambia, while reiterating that this is not the final game in the group, they need to work hard if they must qualify.

“Three days ago when I was sitting here, we just lost a game and I talked about being professional, use your experience, come back to next game, don’t be anxious, just work on hard and that’s what I will tell the players before the next game. Don’t think that this game we won today is the final game in the group, now we have to work hard so we can get qualification to the semi final. We stay cool and of course I’m happier today than three days ago.”

The Super Falcons now have three points after two matches and will be hoping to seal qualification with a win over Equatorial Guinea and hope other result go in their favour
