Ruth David, Head, Women Football, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has expressed confidence that the Supper Falcons will again defeat their Cameroonian counterparts at the ongoing African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON).

David, who expressed the confidence when she spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja, hinged it on the team’s string of victories at the competition.

NAN reports that Falcons had at the last edition of the championship defeated the Cameroonian side 2-0 in the final in Windhoek, Namibia.

She urged the Super Falcons to beat the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon for the second consecutive time in AWCON.

“The Falcons have done it before and I am confident that they will do it again. We will beat Cameroon for the second time,’’ David said.

She congratulated the team for coming this far in the tournament, saying: “I want to congratulate the team for reaching the final of the event and for not conceding any defeat so far.

“This shows that our ladies are a force to reckon with when it comes to football in Africa.

“Right now, we are concerned about winning the title again.

“They should not be distracted because Cameroon is the host team. They should play their game well,’’ David told NAN.

NAN reports that Falcons will take on the Lionesses on Saturday, while Ghana and South Africa will tackle each other for third position on Friday.
