Nigeria defender Glory Ogbonna believes it will be difficult for the Super Falcons of Nigeria to beat Cameroon in the quarter-finals of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday.
The Super Falcons lost their opening match 2-1 to South Africa’s Banyana Banyana.
23-year-old Ogbonna, who plays for Swedish club Umea IK, told reporters as quoted by Vanguard:
Cameroon women’s team is a good team and they are also pursuing the ticket for the World Cup, as such, they will not be easy to defeat.
They are a very good side and champions of the Africa Women football in their own right.”
We remain focused and committed to securing the World Cup ticket and also win the Women trophy, for a record 10th time. What we are doing is just taking each game at a time and at the same time, correcting each of our mistakes in the matches.
Meanwhile, forward Uchenna Kanu has warned teams in the competition they have rediscovered their form and are ready to take on any team.
I am super proud of the team, and the performance and I’m super executed. This was my first start and the first goal of the tournament and I am thankful for that. I am now looking forward to the next game.
If you judge our previous games and how hard we have been working and training we are prepared to face any team. We are getting better as a team and I think we are ready to match up with any team.
It’s going to be a challenging game, but we are ready and prepared for the challenge.
