Ahead of the Super Falcons’ crucial match against Equatorial Guinea on Saturday, Head CoachThomas Dennerby says the Cup holders will do everything possible to secure one of the two semi final spots.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference held at the Cape Coast stadium, Dennerby said the team will work as they have worked from the beginning. “We are not making any changes. We work as we have done from the beginning. We will try our best to secure the position as one of the two teams in Group B that will qualify for the semi finals.”
Responding to a question on what he intends to do differently against Equatorial Guinea who have also won two Women Africa Cup of Nations titles, he said: “It is to stay by our plan. Don’t get stressed because if the players feel they have a stressed coach it will probably affect the players. So, keep on walking and following the plan.
“Like we said in the first game when we lost to South Africa that we don’t do any changes and we have trust in what we are doing and we keep on doing it better and better each day. We also said after the first game that we will probably improve as the tournament went on and I think that is what is going to happen. The Falcons will get better. I hope we have our best performance so far tomorrow and I hope we keep improving ahead of the semi finals.”
The Swede further said he was happy the team created a lot of chances against Zambia, noting that they will keep working on improving the conversion rate. “First of all, I am very happy that they created a lot of good chances. That is the first step and to be honest, everybody that saw the game is aware that we probably should have scored more goals. So, we just have to find good technique to score more goals.”
