Super Eagles Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr has advised players of the
senior women national team, Super Falcons to play together in unity,
ahead of their defence of the African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) in
Cameroon next month.
Without mincing words, Rohr declared on Tuesday that the Super
Falcons can become the champions of Africa for the eighth time in
Cameroon, where the 10th Women Africa Cup of Nations will take place
19th November– 13th December.
The Franco-German, who was at the Falcons training on Wednesday
afternoon impressed it on the Falcons to live together like one big
family for them to be able to successfully defend the African title,
which they won for the seventh time in Namibia in October 2014.
Rohr told the team, “You must have a good team spirit because it is
very important to not just play
together but bond together and have fun
in training and in the camp as well.
“To have fun but to be very serious, it is what we do in the Super
Eagles team. We have the family spirit of oneness and togetherness. Not
just like a team but to live like a family. With this, you can become
champions again. And I am going to be in Cameroon to support you.
“I see some girls here today but I know that professionals will join
them very soon. Very good players, some of them play in big countries
like USA, Sweden, France. The other teams in Nigeria group don’t have
many of such players I think. So, it’s a good team and you also have
experience,” Rohr concluded.
