Nigeriaâ€™s Super Falcons are ready for the tomorrowâ€™s African Women Championship, AWCÂ semi final cracker against the Lionesses of Cameroon in South Africa.
Nigeriaâ€™s head to head record against Cameroon in the AWC is awesome with fourÂ victories and two draws in six confrontations.
The Falcons have hit 22 goals against the Lionesses, against the miserly three goalsÂ conceded in the six games.
The Falcons have been in sizzling form in South Africa so far with sexy, ruthlessÂ and effective football which has left their opponents in embarrassment.
The Nigerian ladies have scored ten goals in three games and conceded just once. AÂ win against Cameroon will not only guarantee a final ticket, but qualify the countryÂ for next yearâ€™s FIFA Women World Cup in Germany.
But this wonâ€™t come on a platter of gold, as the former Super Eaglesâ€™ coach,Â Â Adegboye Onigbinde has added his voice to the growing list of apprehensive NigeriansÂ over the semifinal clash.
Onigbinde, who commended the Falcons for their flawless run in the biennial footballÂ show piece told SuperSport.com that it will be too risky for Nigerian campaigners toÂ lower their guard for ambitious Cameroonians.
â€œIt will be suicidal for Falcons to underrate the Camerounians; women football hasÂ come of age in Africa and every country wants to be winner, so Falcons will be inÂ for a rude shock if they underrate them.
â€œAWC is football in its totality, Falcons have done very well winning all theirÂ matches so far,. But, I will advice them to maintain their winning streak, keep toÂ their cool-headedness and see every opponent as a foe.â€
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Technical Committee member expressedÂ confidence in the five-time African champions to qualify for the World Cup as wellÂ as re-claim the title they lost to Equatorial Guinea two years ago.
â€œI have not changed nor intend to change nationality, every Nigerian expects them toÂ lift the trophy and that is my sincerest expectation, qualify for the World Cup andÂ win the trophy,â€ he said.
