Super Falcons defender, Onome Ebi, regrets that the team failed to beat the Black Queens of Ghana in their second Group B match of the ongoing Women's Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday in Limbe, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The reigning African champions failed to live up to expectation against their rivals Ghana in the game which ended in a 1-1 draw, a result which was not good enough to guarantee the Florence Omagbemi's team a semi-final ticket before their Saturday's final Group B match against Kenya.
Though the Super Falcons remain top of Group B with a superior goal difference, the FC Minsk defender was disappointed at the outcome of the game where they failed to record shots on target.
"Of course, we wanted to win but it didn’t happen like that for our fans," Ebi told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"And for us as players, it was sickening really not to have secured qualification against Ghana before the final game,"
The Super Falcons are gunning for an eight title and could draw either hosts in Cameroun or Egypt in the semi-final of the competition if they go past Kenya on Saturday.
