AWCON Final: Cameroon Coach Plots Power Play Against Super Falcons

AWCON Final: Cameroon Coach Plots Power Play Against Super Falcons

 

Cameroon women's Head Coach Enow Ngachu believes his team's physical approach will give them the edge against the Super Falcons of Nigeria in Saturday's final of the Africa Women's Cup of Nations.

Cameroon are hoping to win their first ever African title while the Falcons will be targeting their 10th title.

At last year's final in Namibia, the Falcons won 2-0.

Reflecting on the 2014 final defeat  to the Falcons, Ngachu posited that qualification for the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada, caused his team to lose focus in the final.

"When we were in Namibia two years ago, the goal was to qualify for the World Cup in Canada," Ngachu told cafonline.

"After achieving the qualification, it made the players lose some level of concentration for the final.

"On Saturday, our goal is to win the gold medal. The poster is certainly the same as in Namibia, but the stakes are different. We beat Nigeria at the African Games in 2015 (In Brazzaville, Congo) and that was our last meeting.

"As a coach, I have always been positive. But be assured that we have abilities to react if we cash in first. We have demonstrated that we can score and provide a lot of opportunities.

"You also have to be wary of a team that defends well. The team that will be cool and physical will make the difference and I think we have the upper hand in that."
