Thomas Dennerby says he is familiar with the pressure and challenge of a serial winning team like the Super Falcons and insists he’s capable of handling the expectations.
Dennerby will lead Nigeria to the 2018 CAF Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana as defending champions; the competition will also serve as qualification for the 2019 World Cup in France.
With the high expectations of the team delivering on the goods in Ghana, the Swede tactician told Brila.net he intends to live up to the billing.
There are just 16 days before Nigeria’s opening match against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana at the Cape Coast Stadium and the Falcons’s preparation is only just getting started.
The team, who are currently camped in Lagos ahead of the 11th edition of the AWCON, lost their first test game against Dominion Hotspur – an all boy’s team – by the slimmest of margin; in a 3-2 result.
