The Super Falcons will confront an injury -riddled Swedish team in Monday’s FIFA Women’s World Cup match in Canada.
The Nation gathered that two of the Swedish potent strikers were down with injuries.
However, the head coach of the Sweden female national team, Pia Sundhage, said at a press conference on Sunday evening that her team would not be ruled by emotions as they have watched several videos clips of the Super Falcons.
She said:”We know quite alright that we are meeting a formidable team. However, I feel we are all prepared for this match against a very strong opposition. We are really looking forward to the game and we are well prepared. “
The Captain of the team, Caroline Segar, added:”It’s easier when you have lots of information about your opponent. I think our coaches have been showing us games of how Nigeria plays, so we are well prepared and we know what type of game it’s going to be on Monday.
“We have seen their games and that gives us a good feeling, so we are looking forward to it. I think for us it’s about preparing and focusing on what to do which is to play soccer.”
The match will start at 9pm Nigerian time in Winnipeg.
