Super Falcons coach Thomas Dennerby says his side are in good shape to take on Cameroon in Tuesday's semi-final clash in the ongoing Africa Women Cup of Nations in Accra.
“We are going to have a tough game [on Tuesday] and it's a new game, we know about it,” Dennerby told media at a pre-match conference.
“We know we are really going to play a really good team but we have seen what we know about Cameroon and we think we really have a good chance to beat them. I think the players are really physically and mentally ready and I suspect that we will have a really good match.”
While reiterating on his side's ambitions, the Swede insists that clinching a ticket to next year's Fifa Women's World Cup and retaining the African crown remains their top target.
“Our preparation is good; we simply work on the team and we don't change so much. We had a plan coming to the tournament and we stick to it. This is one of five games in total, and our objective remains a place at the World Cup as well as defending the trophy,” he continued.
“Our primary objective had always been qualifying for the World Cup. We have a good opportunity to achieve that tomorrow [Tuesday]. We have to stick by our match plan and be fully focused. Victory and World Cup ticket tomorrow [Tuesday] will make us more relaxed playing in the final.”
