2023 WWC: Approach England Game With A Winning Mentality –Babangida Tells Super Falcons

Former Super Eagles Winger, Tijani Babangida has advised the Super Falcons not to show the Three Lionesses of England any form of respect in the round of 16 of the ongoing 2023 Women’s World Cup.

Recall that Nigeria will battle England for a place in the quarter finals of the competition on Monday morning.

In a chat with Completesports.com, Babangida stated that the Super Falcons must approach the game with a positive mindset of winning the game against England.

“The Super Falcons have what it takes to shock England on Monday. I am confident because we have the players to get the job done.

“One important thing the players must do is never to show any form of respect to England. They must approach the game with a positive mindset of winning the game , and so shall it be at the end of 90 minutes.”

    I’m fully in support of Babangidas school of thought . Go in with a winning mentality. In terms of talents SF have an edge. Oshoala was nominated for world footballer while James was not showing that Oshoala is far better than her. Our keeper so far is rated the best in the tournament. Pls pls SF should go in there feeling superior and with a winning mentality. U can’t draw Olympic champions, beat a solid and experience team like Australia and then lose to small England. ( who sabi them for female football?) Go there and show them that your two recent victories over them in friendly wasn’t a fluke

    I think I will prefer a 3-5-2 formation for this match like @deo said in one of his previous posts. England switched to that formation in their last match and scored 6 goals. We need to match them formation for formation. I’m sure Sarina Wiegman will stick to that formation. 

    Plumptre Demehin and chief of defense staff Ohale as the 3 CBs. Alozie on the righ and bring in Imuran on the left. Rofiat plays as a left sided forward in her club. She might be our joker on that left side that lacks speed. Ucheibe Ayinde and Payne retains the midfield while we play two upfront. An Osoala and Oparanoze combo would’ve been great.

    However, that may mean Ajibade drops to the bench or Ajibade pairing Osoala up front with options on the bench. I don’t know if it will be too late, but we played that system against the USA in one of our friendlies and we almost get away with a draw in that encounter until they scored in the closing minutes. We must stay compact and take the game to them. No retreat no surrender. VAMOS ARRIBBA SUPERFALCONS!!!!!! 

    • You already posted this comment at another thread. Besides what’s Oparanozie doing in the team? She doesn’t have the attacking clout that once made her popular earlier in her career. I can’t believe you are suggesting benching Ajibade.

    Totally agree with Babangida! No use hiding and praying to God. Super Falcons must come out anc play with courage and self-belief
