Against a Burkina faso undecided


Bros chill till world cup start,am not yet sold on dis team and d coaching crew


Did we play USA at the AWCON? U are acting like the competition suddenly dropped to rock bottom. If u compare this 5-1 to the Eq Guinea match it is clear that this match was better on the eye. I am not giving a verdict on the coach I am just speaking on the match

You know its refreshing to have a national team with tactical identity again. Even the super eagles, it is difficult to say their tactics.
Kudos to Dennerby who has stuck with his tactic and it seems to have been drilled home amongst the home based players. He said 8 of this team will go to France. I think Uchenna Kanu is definitely going, Nwabuoku is pushing hard too.

Nigeria's Super Falcons striker, Uchenna Kanu is determined to keep getting better after she was awarded the woman of the match award in the team’s 5-1 demolition of Burkina Faso in their opening Group B game of the 2019 Women’s WAFU Cup of Nations in Abidjan on Thursday.
Kanu was the star of the show for the Super Falcons in the encounter played at the Stade Du Parc Des Sports, Abidjan as her hat-trick helped the Super Falcons start the competition on a positive note.
Kanu scored one in the first half and extra two goals after the break.
Captain of the team Evelyn Nwabuoku and Amarachi Okoronkwo got the goals for the Nigerian ladies, both scoring from the penalty spot.
Charlotte Milligo scored the consolation goal for Burkina Faso late in the game.
“It makes me feel excited and confident in myself knowing that I can do it, it doesn’t matter if I start the match or not, this will encourage me to put in extra work,” Kanu told reporters after the game.
Kanu, who is one of the new faces in Super Falcons squad also believes she can earn a spot in the squad to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup if she can maintain this level of performance.
“I will continue to work hard to make the team, the list is not out, so I’m sure I will put in my best to be able to make the team going to the World Cup. I have a lot of work to do if I want to make it to France,” she stated.
Nigeria will be up against Niger Republic on Saturday at 4.30pm Nigeria time in their second Group B match.
The Super Falcons are placed second in Group B albeit on goal difference behind Mali who pummelled Niger 12-0 in the other Group B game also on Thursday.

Women's World Cup: Nigeria boss Thomas Dennerby teamwork key

By Oluwashina Okeleji
Football Writer, France

Nigeria women's coach Thomas Dennerby has urged African nations to improve their teamwork in order to be successful
Nigeria women's coach Thomas Dennerby says African teams need better teamwork if they are to be successful.

The Swede says the individual skills are there to match other continents.

Dennerby guided Sweden to third place at the 2011 Women's World Cup and is now preparing to take the Super Falcons to this year's finals in France.

"There are a lot of skilful and creative players in Africa, but these players need to understand how to play together as a team," Dennerby said.

"Football is really a team sport, one player can not do it all. They [African countries] can perform better when they go to the World Cup as a team."

"African teams need to learn to move the ball around, defend and attack together as a unit

"I think sometimes they play more individually and in a bad shape as a collective side unlike teams from other continents. It's the biggest difference affecting them."

Dennerby, who took charge of the Super Falcons in January 2018, was talking after he saw his side thrash Burkina Faso at the West African Football Union (Wafu) zone B Women's Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

His squad in Abidjan includes Chiamaka Nnadozie, Christy Ohiaeriaku, Glory Ogbonna and Amarachi Okoronkwo, who were all in Ghana when Nigeria won the 2018 Women's Africa Cup of Nations.

That victory in Ghana saw Nigeria keep up their record of having qualified for every Women's World Cup since it began in 1991.

Others in the Wafu squad will be hoping to catch Dennerby's eye and force themselves into his thinking for the World Cup.

He believes the continent can do better than ever at this year's finals if the teams address the lack of collective play.

South Africa and Cameroon are Africa's other representatives in France and the trio will be hoping to do better than Nigeria's quarter-finals place in 1999.

After mixed results in 2019, Dennerby, who is set to become the first foreign coach to both qualify for and lead Nigeria at the World Cup, is confident they have had a decent preparation to impress in France.

"No, I'm not under pressure as a coach because we are working well," he said.

"We've prepared well with the tournaments in China and Cyprus, so the Nigeria federation has been very supportive.

"There is nothing to complain about and I know we have a team capable of doing well at the World Cup."

Nine-time African champions Nigeria are in a tough Group A alongside hosts France, 1995 winners Norway and South Korea.

Debutants South Africa will play in Group B alongside Germany, China and Spain.

Cameroon are drawn in Group E with Canada, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
