Super Falcons coach Thomas Dennerby has assured Nigerian soccer fans that the team will improve and do well at the FIFA Women World Cup billed for June in France.
This followed a 2-1 defeat suffered by the Super Falcons in the hands of Canada during a friendly game in Spain. The team have not been inspiring after winning the Africa Women Cup of Nations and they are fears that they might not last beyond the group stages in France.
“For every game we play, we’re getting closer and closer,” Dennerby told Goal.
“We know that we have a couple of players that were not here in Spain but will definitely be fighting for a shirt in the starting eleven.
We’ve had great camping so far but it’s still two months to the World Cup and when it’s June, we will have the best players on the field.
“Even though some of the players are not performing at the level we hope but they also need a little bit of experience and they also need some time to improve.”
The team’s tactician further expressed disappointment in their loss from an advantage lead but has challenged his players to improve themselves.”
“We knew we played against the number five in the world and we were the first to score them in six games this year,” he continued.
