Twiga Stars Vs Super Falcons - Match Preview

09 September 2015, 14:06

Brazzaville - Caretaker coach of the Super Falcons, Christopher Musa Danjuma continues his quest to lead the Nigerian ladies to win their second All African Games Gold medal with a tricky test against their Tanzanian foes on Wednesday in Brazzaville.

The team started it campaign with a 5-1 whitewash of home team Congo and the Nasarawa Amazons gaffer will be targeting a repeat of such.

A win is what the hard-to-please Nigerians fans will be expecting from their darling team.

This tournament is a chance for some of the fringe players in the squad to stake a claim for jerseys.

Desire Oparanozie has already set the pace for some other youthful players in the team with a quartet of goals against the home team on Sunday.

The Super Falcons will clash with their Tanzanian counterparts at the 60,000 capacity-seater Stade Municipal de Kintélé, Brazzaville by 5pm Nigerian time.
