Super Falcons head coach Thomas Dennerby insists his team will fight till the end despite their 3-0 defeat to Norway in their opening game at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, reports Completesports.com.
The African champions put up a good fight in the encounter but conceded thrice in the first half and despite tactical changes by Dennerby after the break, failed to stage a comeback.
“When it comes to sports, never ever give up. We have to fight for 180 minutes more, plus added time,’’ Dennerby told reporters.
“A game can change in the last minute. So, we will work very hard for it and I can promise that we’ll never give up.”
The West Africans will face South Korea in their next Group A fixture in Grenoble on Wednesday.
Defeat in the game could end their ambition of making it to the Round of 16 but the veteran centre-back is adamant they can beat the Asians.
“We’re going to go back and look at our mistakes and maybe work on them. The second game will be better than the first,”she assured.
“We’ve learned so much from this first game and we’ll come back. We have to win the second game (against Korea Republic), and we’ll do all we can to win.”
