Danjuma sure of Falcons win

19 July 2015, 08:13

Abuja - Ahead of their 2016 Olympic Games qualifier against the senior women’s national team of Equatorial Guinea, Nigeria senior women’s coach, Christopher Danjuma is remaining upbeat about the chances of his team.

The Super Falcons, as the Nigerians are known, have had trouble dealing Equatorial Guinea in recent games, but Danjuma says he and his players will not be having their recent difficulties against the Equatorial Guineans in mind, but will focus on getting the win.

“We will not be thinking about them giving us a hard time in our previous games or not because this will be an entirely different game,” he said.

“I have told my players not to worry about the previous games, but should just concentrate on what we have at hand as it is the most important game now, not the one that is already decided.

“I’m sure we will triumph over the Equatorial Guineans because from what I have seen of my players, I know how ready they are and I am very confident we shall get a very good result that will take us into the second leg,” Danjuma said.
The game comes up today at the Abuja National Stadium by 4pm and it will be Danjuma’s first competitive game as head coach of the Falcons.
