Waldrum while speaking ahead of the game said the team will approach the second leg with more dexterity than the first leg.

We all know that when you do home and away it’s important to keep a clean sheet at home.

“But it’s also important to score a goal in the second leg because the away goal really counts for you.

“So, we will have to find a balance of making sure that we are attacking but also protecting the two-goal lead that we have.”

In the same vein, First Lady of Lagos State, Dr (Mrs) Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu has charged football –loving Nigerians to give ample support to the Super Falcons’ quest for a place at the 12th Women Africa Cup of Nations finals in Morocco.

Mrs. Sanwo-Olu who paid a visit to the team during their training session said she was confident the team would pick the ticket.

I am here to commend you for the victory over the Black Queens in the first leg and to assure you of support for the second leg match coming up in Accra on Sunday.

” I have the belief that you will make Nigeria proud.”

The Super Falcons need a win or at least a draw tomorrow to stand the chance of qualifying to the second round of the AWCON qualifier where they will face Niger Republic or Cote d’Ivoire in February next year.

The 2022 AWCON which will be hosted by Morocco will also serve as Africa ticket to the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
