Super Falcons’ Coach, Edwin Okon has stated that teams who are hell bent on reading his team are only wasting their time as his girls are very unpredictable in their approach at the on-going FIFA Women’s World Cup finals.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference against Australia, Okon said though his team may be seen as underdogs, it’s very difficult to predict their style and they are very much able to spring surprises.
“Anyone who tries to predict my team will be disappointed because we can’t be predicted. All my players are equal to the task and anyone of them can start a game. Nobody can predict the Nigeria team, only our Father in heaven can do that because if you read us A we will give you B, the girls are determined for success and to make the country proud,” he said.
On the tactics he hopes to employ against Australia in the crucial tie, Okon was coy but said only one thing is certain and that is that his team will beat Australia come Friday.
Falcons will play Australia in their second group D match at the Winnipeg Stadium by 4pm local time on Friday after playing a 3-3 draw against Sweden in their opening match at the same venue on Monday. The time will be 10pm in Nigeria.
