Super Falcons manager Thomas Dennerby has stated that his squad is getting better ahead of their semifinal showdown against Cameroon at the 2018 Women's Africa Cup of Nations.
The Super Falcons beat the Shepolopolo of Zambia and Equatorial Guinea to book a place in the semifinal of the tournament.
After losing their opening match to the Bayana Bayana of South Africa, some critics were of the opinion that the Falcons will struggle to progress beyond the group and retain their title.
But now that they’ve booked a place at the semifinal of the competition, Dennerby was full of praise for his team as he looked forward to their next game.
The Swedish tactician also went on to confirm that game against Cameroon will be tough after both sides faced off in the final of the last tournament and a qualification spot to the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup at stake.
Nigeria face the Lionesses of Cameroon in the semifinal of the 2018 AWCON on Tuesday, November 27 with the winner set to advance to the final of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.
