AWCON 2016: Super Falcons targets win against Kenya


The Nigeria super Falcons will lock horns with the Harambee Starlets of Kenya in their last group game on Saturday of the 2016 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Cameroon.

Kenya, crashed out of the tournament after losing their first match 3-1 to Ghana and also bowed 3-1 to Mali on Wednesday.

Coach of the Harambee Starlets, David Ouma has promised to go for victory against the Super Falcons.
“We are the first casualty and have not met our target in our maiden appearance at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations,” Ouma said

“We wanted to be in the semis. The game was a simple analysis. We got a chance, fail to score; Mali gets same chance and they score.

“We got good chances to score but fantastic goalkeeping from Mali denied us. Sometimes you need luck in a game.

“Our aim is to take the most from every game. We still have a game against Nigeria and there is nothing like resting key players.

“The players who are fit will play against Nigeria. We have to throw in what we have in the last game,” Ouma said.

The Super Falcons who are on four points, need to beat Kenya to guarantee their qualification for the semi-finals.
