Falcons will not defend against France – Dennerby


Super Falcons coach, Thomas Dennerby, says the team will not defend against hosts, France, in their last group A game at ongoing Women’s World Cup in France.

Dennerby said this in a video posted on the team’s Twitter handle, ahead of the African champion’s clash against the Europeans on Monday.

France, however, are favourites to be successful at Roazhon Park Stadium, Rennes, after two wins from two matches while Falcons have three points from two games as well.

On her part, former captain of the team, Rita Chikwelu, assured fans of the team’s readiness against France.

A point from the final group game could secure Nigeria a spot in the Round of 16.

The Nigerian ladies have used this weekend to put finishing touches to the make-or-break clash with France.
