Ottawa - Super Falcons coach Edwin Okon and his skipper Evelyn Nwabuoku have claimed that they don’t know what to expect from Sweden when Nigeria squares off against the European powerhouse tonight in Winnipeg.
The African champions shared the spoils with Sweden when both countries met at the 2007 edition of the tournament, with Cynthia Uwak leveling matters for Nigeria eight minutes from time after Victoria Svensson’s 50th minute goal.

''I know nothing about Sweden. I am very sincere. We just have to prepare well to meet them, I do not know or haven’t read about them.
''It's what happens on the pitch that counts,'' Edwin Okon told reporters.
Nigeria number 14 Evelyn Nwabuoku added: '' I know nothing about the team.''
Nigeria have progressed beyond the group phase only once – in 1999- in previous editions of the tournament.
The Super Falcons have contested 19 games at the World Cup, winning three, drawing two and losing the rest.
