France 2019:Super Falcons focus on South Korea



The Super Falcons have settled at their Mercure Grenoble Centre President Hotel in the city of Grenoble, ahead of Wednesday’s make-or-break FIFA Women’s World Cup clash with Korea Republic.

Defeat by Norway in Reims on Saturday was quickly forgotten as soon as the delegation left the city, and the focus is now on the clash with Korea Republic at the Stade del Alpes on Wednesday eveningat 3pm Nigeria that must not go wrong.

Korea’s margin of defeat by France, who thumped them 4-0 at the Parc des Princes in Paris in the championship opening match, means Nigeria is third in the pool, and being a 24 –team tournament, the African champions will be in good stead to reach the Round of 16 if they brush the Koreans aside on Wednesday and hold France to a stalemate in Rennes on 17th June. They can then hope to be among the four best third-placed teams to advance from the group stage.

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, who watched the defeat by Norway in Reims on Saturday alongside 2nd Vice President Shehu Dikko, General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi and Executive Committee member Aisha Falode, charged the Falcons to overcome the loss to the Scandinavians and plot a surefire strategy that will extract the three points from the Asians on Wednesday.
