Super Falcons Technical Adviser Thomas Dennerby says his side’s last Group A game at the Women’s World Cup against hosts nation France would be “the game of his life”.
The African Women’s soccer champions are going to the World Cup carrying the hope of the entire continent on their shoulders.
Many back home believed the team has been given the necessary supports to reach the last four of the tournament, twenty years after playing their only quarterfinal game at the World Cup in the United States.
Speaking ahead of the competition, Dennerby admits his side was unlucky with the draw but believed they stand a good chance against the former World champions Norway and the Korea Republic.
“We have a really tough group, no doubt about it,” Dennerby said. “I think we have a really good chance to have a good game against Norway and also against South Korea.
“And hopefully, if I can dream a little, three or four points when we come to the final match against France so that we can have that feeling of: ‘Wow this is a once-in-a-lifetime game against the host nation.’ If I were still a player, it would be the game of my life.”
The Super Falcons will face Norway, Korea Republic, and host Nation France at the summer World Cup.
