The Twiga Stars handler said losing to the Super Falcons was not a big deal because of their pedigree in African women football

Tanzania women national team coach Rogasian Kaijage felt that losing to Nigeria was not a big deal because of their rating in African football.

A brace from Desire Oparanozie and strike from Esther Sunday handed the reigning African champions a 3-0 win against the east African country in the All African Games women’s football event.

Kaijage felt that, losing to the Falcons is nothing to worry about because they are one of the toughest sides in African women’s football.

“We are not ashamed of anything, Nigeria is a super power not only in African women’s football but in the world,” Kaijage told

“For us, losing to the Falcons is not a big deal because we are not anywhere near them in standard.

“We can only compete with teams like Congo and not even Ivory Coast. Nigeria and Ivory Coast are the strongest teams in African women’s football.

“So losing to Nigeria is not a worry to us because we know they are far too much ahead of us and we cannot compete against them,” he concluded.

Nigeria face Cote d’Ivoire while Tanzania square up against hosts Congo Brazzaville in the group game.
