Abuja - Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo has tipped
Super Falcons to beat Rwanda and ultimately go ahead to win the African Women
Championship later in the year in Namibia.
The Chelsea FC defender who just completed a loan season at
Middlesborough FC of England spoke after watching the Super Falcons training in
Abuja on Wednesday morning, saying he was delighted with what he saw and
believed that Rwanda cannot match the Nigerian women.
"I see Falcons emerging the next AWC champions because
that is where they belong. Aside the last time they lost the title, they have
always been the best in Africa. I am tipping them to win the AWC and do well at
the World cup.”
"It is amazing seeing how much talents we have in women
football and in the national team. I am very confident that these girls would
deliver. It is at the world stage that I want them to rise to the occasion and
show the stuff they are made of," he stated.The former Flying Eagles star however warned the
girls not to underrate the Rwandese as women football is no longer the
exclusive right of Nigeria to win, adding that Falcons should go to Kigali for
a win and make the return leg a formality.
