WAFCON 2022: Super Falcons Fired Up For Cameroon Clash – Ebi

Super Falcons captain Onome Ebi says the Super Falcons are up for the challenge as they look forward to the quarter-final fixture against Cameroon at the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.

Thursday’s encounter will hold at the Stade Mohamed V, Casablanca.

A place in the semi-final will guarantee a spot at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Randy Waldrum’s side can boast of a superb record against the Indomitable Lioness in the competition.

Cameroon suffered a 6-0 spanking from the Falcons in the semi finals of the 1998 Women Africa Cup of Nations (which Nigeria hosted and which was the first edition) but things have improved a bit for the Lionesses since then. In the semi finals of the 2010 edition in South Africa, they were thumped 5-1 by the Falcons.

Both countries contested the Final matches of the 2014 and 2016 Women AFCON. In 2014 in Windhoek, Namibia, the Falcons ran away 2-0 winners to lift the trophy for the seventh time. In 2016 in Yaounde, the Lionesses suffered a heartbreak in front of their cheering fans when Desire Oparanozie scored a late goal to hand the trophy to Nigeria for the eighth time.

Four years ago, in Accra, both teams also met in the semi final stage. It was a tough duel that ended 0-0 after regulation and extra time, but the Falcons again prevailed 4-2 after penalty shoot-out on the way to their ninth title.

Ebi insisted that the title holders are up for the challenge once again.

“Of course, we know what to expect. The Cameroonians also want to go to the World Cup. But we have never missed the World Cup and we won’t start now,” the veteran defender told thenff.com.

“Our eyes are fully focused on Australia & New Zealand, and then we can start talking about the trophy.”

    “I get before, nor be property”

    Work hard, be prepared & achieve your goals is the right way to go!

  • MONKEY POST 2 years ago

    Apparently a certain forumite with the name KIM seems to be working for csn..


    Otherwise I see no reason why I should be banned for replying him on my comment on the ojo thread..

    He thought I was gonna lambast him?


    No! I was only going to clearify why I used the phrase “Nigerian player”

    But csn let it be the last time you will try that on me..

    You guys know that I cause traffic the most..

    So I don’t wanna see you guys stylishly begging me not to go.. cos I might just decide to dump you guys for another sport page..

      Don’t vex. We like your post here. Even most of the Super Falcons players are in rubbish league. Imagine Tochukwu Oluehi playing in Iseal. She should be playing with Oshoala in Barcelona or she should be playing in England for Chelsea.

    U no the Cameroon ladies play static football ..
    Dey play physical football
    Compare to falcon that send the ball to work.. that is the reason Cameron ladies the lionesses wil loss..
    If they can approach the game the way they handle the last two games. And even if they lionesses try to change their style of play at this time.they wil not be able to sustain it. ..a crowded mid field from the falcon wil kill the camerooneses if there is any word like that

      @Olujjjj, read my message below. You tried with your analysis but you missed some details.

      • Olujjjj 2 years ago

        @ebubediq pls educate me on wat I missed..

        • Ebubedike 2 years ago

          @Olujjjj, You focus too much in physicality. You also like fixed static style. You can be a better analyst by listening to someone like Victor Ikpeba or Eddy Dombraye. Listen to Elegbete FM to see how analysis is done.

        • Olujjjj 2 years ago

          @ebubediq sorry I guess u are a Cameroonians .. I went through ur sewage football on u tube and Herubbish I now no where u are coming from…
          .I m sure lionesses wil come to the field with that ur fifa ban jersey. I no u can’t know that

    • Ebubedike 2 years ago

      @Olujjjj, football has gone beyond relying on Jersey to put fear in your opponents. Go and read Pele’s books and also write ups of Solace Chukwu and Ed Dove. After that you will become far better than most people here in analysing football.

      • Olujjjj 2 years ago

        @ebubedike y are u using wat I say to attack me .. u have two mouth.. . speaking from both sides of the mouth … Cameroon Togo Cameron Tunisia Cameron vs u again…. Na penalty falcon wil use kill ur team in 1st half

    • Ebubedike 2 years ago

      @Olujjjj, gone are the days when great teams rely on penalties to win matches. You are too fixed of penalties mentality syndrome. Go and read the book on good football tactics written by Austin Eguavoen. You will realise how outdated your methods are.
