Paris 2024 Qualifier: Super Falcons Will Face A Different Banyana In Pretoria — Ellis

South Africa head coach, Desiree Ellis has said the Super Falcons will be up against a different Banyana Banyana side on Tuesday.

The reigning African champions will be up against the Super Falcons at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium, Pretoria.

The Super Falcons won the first leg of the 2024 Olympic Games final qualifying round contest 1-0 thanks to Rasheedat Ajibade’s first half penalty.

Ellis claimed that the Banyana Banyana were better than what they showed in the first leg.

“Looking forward to the game tomorrow, we have looked at the footage [first game] as well. We know we are better than what we showed in Nigeria. We can do way better than that, and I think the second half showed how well we can play. It is a match we have to win,” Ellis told safa.net.

“We have to put everything into it to make sure that we get the goal early to be able to kickstart from there. We know it won’t be easy, Nigeria got the one goal advantage and we have to prepare for every eventuality.”

  • We know!!! But don’t forget. The universe in its elements of force favors the superfalcons this time. Falcons are qualifying.

  • Don’t kill yourself this old woman. Respect your senior. 

  • Pure mind game. SF i no gree fu anybody.

  • This woman is really scared of the Super Falcons and she knows the odds are seriously against Banyana Banyana. That is why she has been talking like a parrot, even before the first leg. I know her type of personality. When they are afraid, they simply become a chatterbox.

  • What kind of a coach is this that is exposing her strategy before a match, a no understand o.

    • @Cyril Kasim that sounds like a normal coach talk to me. she exposed no tactics there. IF that was her strategy for the game as you claim, then South African Football Authorities should sack her lol.

  • She has forgotten that Super Falcons are better than what they displayed in Abuja stadium.

    Most of the players joined the camp late.

    My advice to Super Falcons is not to play to her mind game and even use her bragging to punish her in the match.

    God bless Super Falcons of Nigeria

    This is the reason I said Nigeria should work on conversion. Waldrum’s team creates chances in almost all their matches but they hardly convert them. The goals missed by Ihezuo and Kanu were quite appealing. I’m still looking for the ball Kanu blew away in that second half in Abuja till today.

    Besides, we have to be organized at the back. I’m so happy with Ayinde, Abiodun and occasionally, Christy in that midfield. The free flow football was highly distrusted. And that was a plus for us. Goals win matches. If we don’t take our chances,because I know they will come, South Africa will win the match.

    Nobody should take Ellis serious
    No be today. South Africans have always been like that. You’d think they would wipe us by 5 goals before the first leg. The story has changed now. I remember in 1995, while playing WCQ matches, the way their coacjes and players talked ehen, you’d think we shouldn’t even enter the field at all to play. Even after getting a 4-1 bashing in Ibadan, they wouldn’t stop talking until they recieved a bigger disgrace of 7-1 in Johannesburg or is it Pretoria. We remember that in year 2000 or 2002 WAFCON hosted by them. We played them in the final. Come and see noise everywhere. But after getting a 2-0 bashing, they started throwing stones and bottles. Nigerian players had to be smuggled out of the stadium that year. I know things have changed since then, with their heavy investment in football and consistency. But this Super Falcons I watched in Abuja last week will destroy the SAs any day, any time. The addition of Okeke and Ihezuo has made the team a lot stronger, honestly. I like the way Ihezuo kept them busy at the back all through. The defence and the midfield are solid too. Then we’ve got Chiamaka unlike that their jittery and uncoordinated Swart. If we pepper that girl, their net go shake as many times as possible. They know they’re in trouble. Reason the panic attacks you see in those interviews. LET THE FALCONS WORK ON THEIR CONVERSION if they wanna win o.

    She talks too much. Waiting!! We are going to the Olympics at their expense, that’s what matters.
