AWC: Okon wants maximum points from Super Falcons

16 October 2014, 20:22Israel Ojoko

Windhoek - Super Falcons Coach Edwin Okon has told the players to go for nothing but all three points at stake when they clash against hosts Namibia at the ongoing Africa Women Championship.

The six-time African champions, who have already qualified for the semifinals of this year’s edition after a 6-0 drubbing of the She-polopolo  of Zambia on Tuesday,  take on Namibia on Friday in their last Group A match at the Sam Nujoma Stadium and Coach Okon says he wants nothing but victory against the hosts.

"Against Namibia I want victory. We are not taking our feet off the pedal. This is a championship and no team is here to soft-pedal for anyone. We are gunning for the maximum nine points from our group stage matches.”

"People are talking about approaching the match against Namibia lackadaisically because we have already qualified but I have seen their team and they are not a bad side to be handled lightly. There are no longer minnows in football so we will enter the game with the same mindset we had against Ivory Coast and Zambia.”

"The 21 players here are good and equal to the task at hand. Anyone who is called upon to represent us will not fail but will deliver,” said Okon.

The team trained on Thursday after resting on Wednesday after the Zambian game.
