Okon urges Falcons to sit up

25 April 2014, 17:43Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Super Falcons coach, Edwin Okon has demanded improvement from the girls after watching them concede yet another defeat in a test game, the latest being the one nil loss to National U-15 boys team on Thursday at the FIFA goal project pitch in Abuja.

The team has not won any game since they resume camp.

Okon noted that there was no reason for his girls to have lost against the U-15 boys after playing very well against a faster and stronger Sia-One academy two days earlier.

"It is painful that we lost that match. You girls don't have any explanation for their below average performance against boys who were assembled just three days before the game.

"You played well in a fast tempo match against older boys on Tuesday and now this? Are we going forward or backwards?" A visibly angered coach Okon asked his girls.

He continued "We have a serious task ahead of us and we are condemned to qualifier for the Africa Women Championship (AWC) and do well at the competition proper, so we all have to brace up and show that we are ready for Africa."
