Super Falcons coach reveals what he loves about the team
Super Falcons coach Thomas Dennerby has revealed the things he fancy about his team after winning the WAFU Women's Cup in Abidjan on Saturday.
Super Falcons were one goal down until an equaliser in the last minutes of the encounter. Nigeria eventually defeat host Ivory Coast 5-4 on penalty shootout.
Dennerby said he was edified by the comeback feat of the Falcons against host nation Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the WAFU Cup on Saturday.
“Scoring the equalizer in the very last minute of time-added-on showed the never-say-die, never-give-up attitude of the Super Falcons and I really, really love that. It means that this team has learnt to fight till the last second of every game and that spirit will be massive for us at the World Cup.
“I want to thank the NFF for their huge support to the team since the team qualified for the World Cup, with all the friendly tournaments and campings that we have had. We will go to France to give our best effort.”
Eight home –based players, alongside technical and administrative officials led by Head Coach Thomas Dennerby travelled aboard Air France flight to Paris on Monday, to connect the Austrian city of Bad Tatzmannsdorf, where they will perfect tactics and strategies at the Avita Resort before hitting France on 4th June for the FIFA Women's World Cup finals.
