2019 WAFU Cup semifinal: Up your game against Ghana- Dennerby, Madu charge Falcons

Super Falcons’ Chief Coach Thomas Dennerby and his assistant Maureen Madu have charged the players to double their efforts and put up a strong performance against rivals Ghana in Thursday’s semifinal match of the ongoing WAFU Women’s Cup tournament holding in Cote d’Ivoire.

Maureen Madu who spoke on behalf of the team disclosed to www.adantesports.com.ng that the Chief Coach and the entire coaching crew of the team were not happy about the performance of the team in the final Group B match where they fought hard to beat Mali 2-0 on Tuesday to sail through to the semifinal of the competition.

The former Super Falcons dazzling midfielder even described the Falcons’ performance against Mali as the worst performance from the team in the competition. She then disclosed that Dennerby has already told the players to put up a better and stronger performance in the semifinal against perennial rival Ghana on Thursday.

“We the coaches led by our Chief Coach Thomas Dennerby were not happy about the performance of our team in the final Group B match against Mali despite beating Mali 2-0 in today’s (Tuesday’s) match. We are only happy that we won the match to qualify for the semifinal. This wasn’t our best game. In fact this is the worst game we played since we came to this competition. The Chief Coach told the players point blank.

“We have already told the players that we cannot have it like this against Ghana in the semifinal. We have told them that they should go all out against Ghana. They should step up their game, follow instructions, fight for the team and fight for the nation.

“After the meeting Coach Dennerby told them to put up a strong performance against Ghana in the semifinal, and then the players promised us that they are going to do their best against Ghana. So we are looking forward to the Ghana match. We just have to forget the last match we played and focus on the one that is in front of us. That is the important thing for us, to go all out to give our best and make sure we beat Ghana on Thursday”, Madu told www.adantesports.com.ng in an exclusive chat from Cote d’Ivoire.
