2020 Olympics Qualifier: Dennerby Sure Of Victory Against Algeria

Super Falcons head coach Thomas Dennerby is confident his team will beat Algeria in today’s (Tuesday) Tokyo 2020 Olympics qualifying fixture against Algeria at the Agege Stadium, reports Completesports.com.

Dennerby said his optimism of victory against the Algerians is based on the performance of his team in the first leg last week in Blida.

“I believe my team has the chance to qualify for the next round if the performance of my players in the first leg is anything to rely upon. They did well in Algeria but I will like them to do even better tomorrow,”Dennerby told reporters at the Agege Stadium.

The Swedish tactician also said that the team is still work in progress hence he will continue to do his best to prepare the team well to ensure that Nigeria qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

“It can be recalled that Nigeria has not qualified for the Olympic Games in the past two editions ( London 2012 and Rio 2016) and for this reason we have to qualify this time around. We should try to make it to the next edition. We have a chance to do that if we together work hard to achieve our aim”, Dennerby said.

The overall winner of the contest will face the winner of the game between Cote d’l voire and Mali in the next round.

  • Qualifying for the Olympics Women soccer events for next year’s games will not be an easy feat for Dennerby and his ladies.

    It should be recalled that the Super Falcons fought bravely but ultimately fell in battle whilst attempting to capture qualification for the last two Olympic finales – and thise were even with two tickets up for grabs for each tournament!

    Now, in a continent of 54 countries, the Olympic organisers allocated a grand total of one slot for Africa this time around. For this solitary tickets, our brave women warriors will still potentially have the following foes to face: Cameroon, South Africa, Ghana and Ivory Coast (assuming, as expected, they overcome Algeria in this round).

    “It can be recalled that Nigeria has not qualified for the Olympic Games in the past two editions ( London 2012 and Rio 2016)”, said the Swede in a buoyant mood. “We should try to make it to the next edition. We have a chance to do that if we together work hard to achieve our aim.” He concluded in the article above.

    Make no mistake about it: qualifying for next year’s Olympics in itself will be a monumental achievement for the Swede and his ladies owing to the number of slots on offer and the quality of teams that still lie in wait in the remaining rounds of the qualifiers.

    If they make it, and that is a big if, it might be unrealistic to expect anything other than a group stage exit owing to the quality and number of teams that will feature in the games.

     
    • I have taken only just realised that a second team from Africa can still qualify if they win the play-off against the 2018 Copa América Femenina second-placed team, Chile.

      Narrow margins I tell you: narrow margins!!
