Abuja - The Super Falcons continue to intensify preparation
for the African Women Championship (AWC) qualifier against Rwanda in Kigali by
defying a heavy down pour to train for two hours at the Goal project pitch of
the Abuja National Stadium.
The coaches led by Edwin Okon drilled the girls in the acts
of shooting on target, marking, passing and set pieces on the very wet pitch.
Okon explained the reason why he did not stop the training
was because he wanted the players to get used to all weather conditions stating
that it might just be raining in Kigali when they play Rwanda on May 24.
"My girls are used to playing under very hot condition
so it is only wise to allow them train inside the rain. We have to prepare for
any eventuality. I am happy they could play in the rain" he stated.
Meanwhile the coach stated that he is looking forward to
playing at least two more test games before they depart for Rwanda for the AWC
qualifier in a fortnight.
