Nkwocha: Falcons Don’t Fear Sweden

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Super Falcons striker Perpetua Nkwocha has exclusively told completesportsnigeria.com that the Nigerian team are gearing up for their Women’s World Cup duties and have no fear whatsoever ahead of their opening game against Sweden.

The team coached by Edwin Okon will square up against Sweden in their Group D opener on Monday.

“The team is set for the World Cup. We want to thank Nigerians for their support so far,” the veteran striker told completesportsnigeria.com from Canada, the host country of the World Cup, on Thursday.

“We have never gone beyond the quarter-final stage at the senior World Cup but we have big ambitions and I believe that this time can get far.

“Thank you for your (Nigerians) prayers, I say Amen to them. My teammates are okay. We are not worried about our opponents.”
Nkwocha is a four-time winner of the CAF African Women’s Footballer of the Year award – in 2004, 2005, 2010 and 2011 – and has represented Nigeria in the 2003 and 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cups and the Olympic tournaments of 2000, 2004 and 2008.

She now plays for Swedish second division club, Clemensnäs IF.

    We saw what happened with the Flying Eagles boasting not being afraid of Brazil, and that they were there to win the trophy on offer. Right, every participating team is there for the trophy too. Let the Falcons not start boasting about how they are not afraid of Sweden. Let them rather walk the talk. The field of play will determine the better prepared or coached team. Keep our fingers crossed, analyze proceedings as the game progresses, read the match tactics, contain the opponents in the first half at most, and then play your game in the second, applying the knowledge gained from the field of play. The opponents would do the same thing too, so you better watch out. Try to conceal your game plan at all costs until you understand what your opponents are about. Sweden is not a push over team by any means. Their coaches are good at reading matches and making adjustments to contain their opponents too. All the best.
