Super Falcons head coach, Thomas Dennerby, has declared that the team will go all out for a win in today’s (Wednesday) 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations Group B encounter against the Shepolopolo of Zambia, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Dennerby charges started their campaign on a disappointing note going down to a 1-0 defeat against the Banyana Banyana of South Africa.
They will look to bounce back from that shocking defeat when they face the Zambians who thrashed former champions, Equatorial Guinea 5-0 in their first game on Sunday.
Dennerby insists the defending champions who are the most successful side in the history of the competition with eight titles must prove their worth against their opponent.
“As a coach you have to be professional and as I said before the opening fixture, whatever happens there are more games ahead. The best thing you can do as a coach and as a player is to start thinking about winning the next games and try to find how many goals you need to score and where you can be on the standings,”Dennerby told reporters ahead of the game.
“We are just working the way we used to be, trying to prepare the team the best way we can. I remain optimistic; the aim has not changed and definitely securing a ticket to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
“We hope to go all the way to the final in this tournament again. And of course we need to win against Zambia. Everybody knows we have to perform our best and fight with our hearts. We have to show ourselves that we are really a team that can handle situations like these.
“Big teams use to do that and if we are really a big team, we will show that in the game against Zambia.”
