Burundi star Falone Nahimana can’t wait to face title holders Super Falcons of Nigeria at the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Morocco.
Both teams will clash in a Group C encounter at the Moulay Abdellah Sports Complex on Sunday (today).
The Super Falcons and Swallows need a win to secure qualification for the knockout stages, though the latter know their task will not be an easy one against a country that has absolutely dominated this competition.
“We are going to play against a very experienced team at WAFCON. We want to correct our past mistakes made in the previous two games we have played so far and we hope to do well,” Nahimana, who plays for Huddersfield TAFC in the United Kingdom told CAFonline.com.
Reflecting on her participation in the competition Nahimana said : “I am very grateful to the Federation for giving me the opportunity to play for the Burundian team and tomorrow’s match is my dream match and playing against a great team like Nigeria is a great opportunity.
“For us, as players, we have to go and fight as a team and do it with respect for our country.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
