Former Super Falcons coach Paul Hamilton has tipped Nigeria’s Super Falcons to lift the 2014 African Women Championship in Namibia.
The Falcons on Tuesday humiliated Zambia 6-0 to remain top of Group A. They had on Saturday defeated Cote d’ Ivoire 4-2 to go top of Group A.
Hamilton while speaking with Completesportsnigeria.com thumbs up Edwin Okon’s team for their brilliant performances in the Championship.
“Their winning start against Cote d’ Ivoire was commendable, this (win over Zambia) was just brilliant.
“They’ve reached the semi- finals after Tuesday’s victory but it will be nice if they finished the group stages with the maximum points, so hopefully they will also win their game against Namibia. I’m convinced this Falcons side can win the African Women Championship (AWC).
Hamilton who was the first Nigerian coach to be in charge of the Falcons at the FIFA Women’s Cup when he led the team to the maiden edition in China in 1991 tips Cote d’ Ivoire and Cameroon as teams strong enough to join Nigeria in next year’s Women’s World Cup in Canada.
“Cameroon look strong, the Ivorians as well,” Wonder B concludes.
Nigeria will play their last group game against hosts, Namibia, on Friday.
