The Super Falcons’ interim head coach has stated that his team is prepared to finish the demolition of Cape Verde in Tuesday’s second-leg match in Praia.
After demolishing them five-nil in Abuja, the Super Falcons will play their Cape Verdian opponents in the 2024 Women Africa Cup of Nations final round return leg in the island nation.
According to Madugu, the team will take advantage of the favorable weather conditions in a nation located inside the Atlantic Ocean, rather than off the extreme wing of West Africa.
He said: “We are not expecting that to be a factor. However, in the course of the game, we know what to do to address the weather situation. We know how to play against the wind.
“We are not taking anything into chance with the blend of players that we have. We are not taking anything for granted.
” We are here to play and win irrespective of the position.
“We will try and impress them so that they can get disgraced at home.
“No matter how great your team is, you will always notice a few areas you can improve on.
“We have noticed some few areas we feel they can work harder so that they will perfect at least what we have noticed either offensively or defensively.”
Tuesday’s second leg match will start at 4 p.m. Cape Verde time (6 p.m. Nigeria time), to be officiated by Liberian official Sylvina Welma Garnett.
In addition, the CAF named Hannah Moses, a Liberian, as the first assistant referee, and Precious Amara and Humu Marah, both from Sierra Leone, as the second and fourth assistant referees, respectively.
The referee assessor will be Fadouma Dia of Senegal, while the commissioner will be Oumou Souleymane Kane of Mauritania.
