11th AWCON Qualifier: Coach wants Falcons to utilise scoring chances in return leg

 Ngozi Ezeh, an FCT-based female football coach, on Friday urged the Super Falcons to ensure they utilise all their goal scoring chances when they face their Gambian counterparts on Monday.

The Falcons host The Gambia in the return leg tie of their 11th African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) qualifying round final fixture in Abuja.

They had defeated the Queen Scorpions 1-0 in Bakau on Wednesday with the return leg scheduled for Monday at the Agege Stadium in Lagos.

Ezeh who coaches Blessed Unity Queens FC, winners of the 2018 FCT Women’s FA Cup competition, said the eight-time champions should not be complacent because of their superiority on the continent.

“Winning 1-0 away is a good result, but the team should ensure they utilise all scoring chances in the return leg, as against what happened in their game on Wednesday.

“The Gambians should not be underrated. Their defence appeared solid and their attack is good as well. So, we should not treat them with kid gloves,’’ she said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that winners of the fixture will qualify for the AWCON tournament in Ghana in November.

Nigeria is hoping to defend the title won in Cameroon two years ago. (NAN)
