Super Falcons are hunting the 9th AWCON title in Ghana – The Daily Trust


The nation's most successful national football team in Africa, Super Falcons from Nigeria, have expressed their readiness to win their 9th title at the women's African Nations Women's Cup in Ghana.

The Falcons, who are in Group B together with South Africa, Zambia and Equatorial Guinea, will launch their campaign against Bayan Bayan in South Africa on Cape Coast tomorrow.

You are striving for a convincing start before the start of the match in the remaining group matches with Zambia on November 21 and Equatorial Guinea on November 24.

The winning champions won all but the last ten releases of tournaments starting in 1998. They were champions in 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2016.

Equatorial Guinea won the continental dominance Super Falcons in 2008 and 2012.

When Falcons returned their first place in South Africa in 2010, they did not return.

Although the Republic of South Africa, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and Zambia will definitely test their credentials, the Hawks are very inclined to exaggerate over all the opponents in Ghana.

Such optimism is not unfounded, in addition to eight AWCON Super Falcons titles in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 games. In 2003, they won two All Africa Games titles, when Nigeria hosted continental games, and in 2007, Algeria.

In addition, they are miles ahead of their contemporaries in terms of appearance at the FIFA Women's World Championship. Super Juices performed at seven World Cups that began in 1991 in China.

Unfortunately, they are expected to further increase their dominance of women's football on a global level, as their best record at the World Cup is still the quarterfinals of 1999 in the US.

Super Falcons won only three, with two and lost 14 of the 19 FIFA World Cup matches played in seven appearances.

Despite their inadequate world cup, the Hawks remain the forces they can count on on the continent and are positioned in Ghana on December 1 to win their 9th African title.

Interestingly, falcons do not shoot only for the title, because they also have their eyes on one of the tickets for the World Cup next year.

The first three teams in the championship automatically qualify for representation

continent of Africa in the world exhibition space in France.

If you want to win your ninth title and qualify for France in 2019, Sokolci will first have to beat their opponents of the group. Without a doubt, they will have the greatest threat in South Africa and Equatorial Guinea.

Women's teams are not exempted from the existing competition between Nigeria and South Africa. That's why tomorrow's fight between Juices and Bayan Bayan will certainly produce fireworks.

In addition, the only two titles Super Falcons lost to the Equatorial Guinea team, who are opponents of Group B in Nigeria.

Nobody needs an eye to know that Guinea is threatening the ultimate ambition of Super Eagles. That is why, for most Falcon fans, there was bad news when the CAF announced the bag of Kenya and the inclusion of Equatorial Guinea in Group B.

He will not walk in the Super Falcons Park, but their scary pedigrees are calming.

In addition to experienced players, the team is also run by an experienced coach from abroad, who knows his onion. Current coach of Sokol, Thomas Dennerby is the second alien who deals with Super Falcons. The first was Dutchman Johannes Bonfrere, who led the team at his first World Cup in 1991 in China. With Olympic gold in 1996, he continued with Dream Team 1 in the United States.

So, at the AWCON 2018 in Ghana, the team will lead the bleeding of the Swedish national women's team in the two FIFA World Cups and finish third in the 2011 final in Germany.

She certainly comes with the real experience and knowledge of women's football in favor of the Falcon.

Another important thing for the champions of the championship is undoubtedly a profile of players who are well-tested and can be trusted at least on the continent. Interestingly, 12 out of 21 players in AWCON 2019 are foreign.

Nevertheless, the remaining nine are for some of the best clubs in the Nigerian league. The star among them is undoubtedly Rasheedat Ajibade, who plays for FC Robo.

Undoubtedly, the dominant African women's soccer player of Asisat Oshoal, who plays for the Chinese side Dalian Quanjidan in the Chinese Women's Super League, is prone to fraudulent goals in Ghana.

It will be added by the successful record, Desire Oparanozie, Francisca Ordega of the USA, Ihezuo Chiwendu and the youngest member of the team, Ajibade, which is supposed to be the future poster of Nigerian women's football.

This is not surprising, since even if the law on falling returns is gradually caught up with older attackers who have fought against many battles, young Ajibade, who was the best actor on soccer at the FIFA U-20 World Championship in France in 2018 in France , just started.

In addition, other players in the group should also be mentioned, who also praise the experience of the World Cup. The defense will be led by experienced defenders Ngozi Ebere, Onome Ebi and Osinachi Ohale.

The captain and the second oldest team member, Rita Chikwel, will anchor the center with the support of Ngozi Okobi and Halimat Ayinde.

It is said that most of the members of the current team in Cameroon in 2016, when Super Falcons won their eighth title AWCON, merely have to unite their actions in order to win in Ghana.

Although the team did not have credible test matches, Abidjan in Cote d'Ivoire rounded off their preparations where they played a little with local clubs.

Given what is at stake, the Nigerians do not expect anything other than the victory of Super Falcon, who are still the team that won the African Cup of Women's Nations.

Super Falcons stars to watch are undoubtedly Asisat Oshoal, Desire Oparanozie, Rita Chikwel, Francis Ordega and Younger, Rasheedat Ajibade.
