Abuja - Coach of Nigeria’s senior women’s football
team the Super Falcons, Edwin Okon, has boasted that teams who are hell bent on
reading his team are only wasting their time as his girls are very
unpredictable in their approach at the on-going FIFA Women's World Cup finals.
Okon, who was
speaking at the pre-match press conference against Australia, said though his
team may be seen as underdogs, it's very difficult to predict their style and
they are very much able to spring surprises.
"Anyone who tries to
predict my team will be disappointed because we can't be predicted,” Okon said.

"All my players are
equal to the task and anyone of them can start a game. Nobody can predict the
Nigeria team, only our Father in heaven can do that because if you read
us A we will give you B, the girls are determined for success and to make the
country proud," he said.
On the tactics he hopes to employ against
Australia in the crucial tie, Okon was coy but said only one thing is certain
and that is that his team will beat Australia come Friday.
Falcons will play Australia in their second
group D match at the Winnipeg Stadium by 4pm local
time on Friday after playing a 3-3 draw against Sweden in
their opening match at the same venue on Monday. The time will be 10pm in
