Super Falcons Talk Tough Ahead Of Tough Game
The Super Falcons say they are confident they can withstand the anticipated fireworks of the Germany women’s team and unleash some of their own in Thursday’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Group A clash between both countries in Frankfurt.
The host nation is hot favourite to take the three points in the encounter on current form and pedigree, but the Falcons insist Thursday’s meeting will be a different ball game compared to what happened in Leverkusen in November 2010.
In a friendly international inside the Leverkusen Stadium, the Germans ran riot, beating the Falco ns 8-0.
“We won’t take anything away from the Germans and their competence but the truth is, there were factors that greatly assisted them in that match. Those factors will not be present on Thursday, and we are all determined to get a result out of this game following the loss to France,” said team captain and goalkeeper Precious Dede as the squad landed in Frankfurt on Monday afternoon.
Venue for Thursday’s match is the hugely impressive FIFA Women’s World Cup Stadium in Frankfurt, which can seat 48,817 spectators. The stadium hosted five matches during the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals and also hosted matches during the 1988 European Championship.
The Falcons must get a result out of Thursday’s game after losing 1-0 to France on Sunday. Germany top the pool on goals difference after edging Canada 2-1, with the Canadians also pointless.
