The Falcons captain Rita Chikwelu says they do not need top friendlies to prepare before the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana.
Chikwelu says the team is working hard in training and believes the lack of competitive top friendlies will not affect the team’s performance in the competition.
The Super Falcons are defending champions of the AWCON and have been the most dominant team in the competition; winning 8 out of 10 editions.
They are one of the favorites when the competition gets underway later this month, but the coach, Thomas Dennerby does not have the full complement of players invited in camp.
The Falcons’s opening group-B match is against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana on November 18th at the Cape Coast Stadium.
