She however said that the Falcons would overcome the Cameroonians in the match, scheduled for Thursday in Casablanca, Morocco.
According to her, “the Cameroon women’s team is a good team and they are also pursuing the ticket for the World Cup, as such, they will not be easy to defeat.
“They are a very good side and champions of the Africa Women football in their own right.”
She said the team’s aim was not only to qualify for the World Cup, but also to retain the Africa Women trophy.
“We remain focused and committed to securing the World Cup ticket and also winning the Women’s trophy, for a record 10th time.
“What we are doing is just taking each game at a time and at the same time, correcting every of our mistakes in the matches,” she stated.
