Nigeria’s female national team, Super Falcons’ coach, Thomas Dennerby has disclosed that one area of the squad he will have to work on and try to perfect before the FIFA Women’s World Cup is their ability to score.
The Swedish gaffer reflected on the matches played by his side in their build-up to France 2019, and admitted that the attackers and every other player in the team need to improve their mettle in scoring goals.
Dennerby, who took over as Falcons’ coach in January 2018, recounted that their difficulty in scoring goals showed during last year’s Africa Women Cup of Nations in Ghana, as well as their friendly with Canada, following the outings at the China Invitational and Cyprus Cup.
The 59-year-old tactician acknowledged that all the matches in which the Falcons struggled to rain goals have left him and his coaching staff with plenty of work still to do, not only in defence, but mosgtly in attack.
“We definitely need to work on our attacking play. We need to work on creating chances against the best teams.
“When you go to a World Cup where we will play against Norway, Korea Republic and France, it will be a totally new challenge for the players.
“We need to work on our build-up play and trying to give the players more confidence on the ball,” Dennerby concluded.
