Super Falcons goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie is confident that the side can get a positive result in Monday’s crucial clash against hosts France – their last Group A match of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, reports Completesports.com.
The African champions will face the host nation at the Roazhon Park, Rennes. Kick-off is 8pm Nigerian time.
The Nigerian Ladies occupy third position in the group and need at least a point to book their passage into the knockout stages of the competition.
The Les Bleues pummelled the Super Falcons 8-0 the last time both teams met in a friendly encounter last year, but Nnadozie is adamant history won’t repeat itself.
“I know they will feel relaxed, thinking that they will maybe score more than eight goals,” Nnadozie told FIFA.com.
“It’s going to be a tough game. They are one of the best teams in the competition, but we are letting them know that it’s not going to be like that again.
“That was last year. I know we are not going to lose. We are going to make our country proud.”
The Thomas Dennerby’s side started their campaign in the competition on a poor note, going down to a 3-0 defeat to Norway but recovered in the penultimate game, edging out Korea Republic 2-0.
