Super Falcons talk tough ahead Rwanda clash

06 June 2014, 21:56Israel Ojoko

Kaduna - Super Falcons have vowed to beat the She Amavubi of Rwanda silly in their second leg Africa Women Championship (AWC) qualifier at the Ahmadu Bello stadium on Saturday.

Falcons after having a feel of the Ahmadu Bello stadium pitch assured that they would consolidate the 4-1 advantage from the first leg in Rwanda by winning very well.

The girls, oozing with optimism agreed that the She Amavubi's  would come fighting, but they would be beaten soundly again in response to the charge of President Goodluck Jonathan to finish what they started two weeks ago by dismissing Rwanda from the AWC.

Skipper of Super Falcons, Evelyn Nwabuoku said there was no cause for alarm as they are ready for whatever opposition Rwanda will pose.

"We are ready for them and we are not really concerned about the pitch whether it is artificial or grass, we are at home and we'll make it count."

Veteran Onome Ebi said Rwanda will fall no matter how much they try noting that Falcons are looking beyond the qualifiers and are focusing on the AWC in Namibia.

Midfielder Asisat Oshoala on her part said that Super Falcons are set to make the first leg score line look like a child's play as they would pummel their visitors come Saturday.

Rising star, Chiwendu Ihezuo said they would not underrate their guest despite having a 4-1 lead from the first leg in Gisenyi pointing out "we want to hold tight to our lead and try to win again by whatever goals margin.
