Super Falcons coach Florence Omagbemi has backed her team to silence Cameroon in Saturday’s Africa Women Nations Cup final in Yaounde.
Both teams have remained unbeaten in the tournament so far, and they will be faced with the task of clinching the trophy. For Cameroon, they will be desperate to break the jinx of not winning the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations since its inception in 1991.
Falcons have won the title a record nine times and are poised to continue their dominance in the African scene as they bid to retain the trophy they won in 2014 after beating Cameroon 2-0.
“Winning the trophy remains the major objective of the team at the tournament. Like I said after we defeated Mali 6-0 that we want to take each game as they come and I am delighted we are where we want to be at this stage of the competition,” Omagbemi said.
“Yes,the Indomitable Lionesses have done enough to be in the final, however, we are simply relaxed regardless of the fact that they are the host nation.
“I quite agree that the fans are their twelfth player, but then,we have mapped out plans on how we will silent the home crowd and eventually win the trophy on Saturday.” she said.
