13 October 2016, 12:28

Lagos - Super Eagles Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr has advised players of the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons to "have fun but be serious" ahead of their defence of the Women Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon next month.

Without mincing words, Rohr declared that the Super Falcons can become the champions of Africa for the eighth time in Cameroon, where the 10th Women Africa Cup of Nations will take place 19th November – 13th December.

Rohr told the team: "You must have a good team spirit because it is very important to not just play together but bond together and have fun in training and in the camp as well.

"To have fun but to be very serious. It is what we do in the Super Eagles team. We have the family spirit of oneness and togetherness. Not just like a team but to live like a family. With this, you can become champions again. And I am going to be in Cameroon to support you.

"I see some girls here today but I know that professionals will join them very soon. Very good players, some of them play in big countries like USA, Sweden, France. The other teams in Nigeria group don't have many of such players I think. So, it's a good team and you also have experience," Rohr concluded.
