Super Falcons set for Kaduna trip

02 June 2014, 11:11Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Super Falcons will depart for Kaduna Wednesday morning to continue their preparation for the second leg tie of the Africa Women Championship (AWC) qualifier against Rwanda at the Ahmadu Bello stadium on June 7.

Nigeria who won the cup eight times has a 4-1 advantage from the first leg and will qualify for the AWC if they avoid heavy defeat against the She Amavubi of Rwanda. A draw will do for the Falcons to qualify.

Team administrator Ruth David who revealed the team's itinerary said the Falcons would train at the Ahmadu Bello stadium pitch before the game.

Team media officer Gracious Akujobi quotes coach Edwin Okon as saying that Falcons would train hard to get used to the grass pitch after training on astro turf for the past two months.

Meanwhile, Okon has said that his girls would play the She Amavubi as if their whole life depend on the game stressing "we won’t be over confident when we play them. We would not be complacent." he said.
