The Super Falcons’ boss believes his team had the ability to score many goals but couldn’t convert begging chances

Thomas Dennerby was not impressed with the Super Falcons despite their 4-0 triumph over Zambia in Tuesday’s Africa Women Cup of Nations game.

Goals from Desire Oparanozie, Francisca Ordega, Rasheedat Ajibade and Amarachi Okoronkwo helped the reigning African champions to bounce back from their opening day defeat to South Africa.

Asisat Oshoala had a poor game as she missed several begging chances which could have killed off the game in the first half at the Cape Coast Stadium.

And, although, the tactician is delighted with the victory, he felt that the team could have gotten more goals against Shepolopolo.

 “First of all, I am very happy we managed to score four goals in this game but honestly I am not 100 percent happy with our performance because we should have scored more goals,” Dennerby told Caf website.

“After our opening game in which we lost, I talked about being professional and using experience to come back in the next game, not being anxious and work on hard.

“I don't think this game we won today is the defining game in the group and now we have to work harder in our next fixture so we secure a place in the semi-finals. So we stay cool and keep working. Of course I am happier than three days ago.”

A win for the Nigerians against Equatorial Guinea in their last group game will see them book a place in the semi-final.
