Super Falcons Coach Thomas Dennerby has backed the Falconets to secure victory in their quarterfinal clash with Spain in Concarneau on Thursday.
The Falconets secured a late equalizer in their last Group D encounter against China to finish as runners-up, with four points despite their opening defeat to Germany.
Despite their shortcomings, the Swedish tactician has hailed the organization and defensive quality of the Chris Danjuma-led Falconets side.
“I think that they have a really good chance to advance because they really defend well and are organized,” Dennerby told Goal.
“They are not attacking with the same strength and a little bit anxious when passing, making too many errors. But this is a really good team. I think Falconets will have a good chance.
“Look at their last game, China are a good team with strong possession and really good moves. But for some reasons they do not create so many scoring chances if you compare it to how much they have the ball.
“The defence is very good. Hard working, well organised and all players taking their responsibility. The attacking play is improving but needs some more creativity. The Spanish team is very good with really strong attacking play.
“But in their last game, they were very tired after 70 minutes. I will advise them not to let any goals in early in the game. As long as the game is going on, I believe we will create more and more chance and high possibility to score.”
