We’ll Shock Falcons – Ghana

By Tony Nwanne

Ghana   coach  Yusif Basigi admits  his team  face an onslaught from their eternal rivals  Nigeria  in their Cameroon 2016 African Women’s Africa Cup of Nations Group B fixture on Wednesday, but  he   has warned    the Super Falcons  the Black Queens  won’t be on their holidays at  Stade Limbe venue for the clash.

The Falcons got their AWCON defence off to a solid start with a 6-0 pounding of  debutants Mali  in Yaounde on Sunday.  Arsenal Ladies forward Asisat Oshoala stamped her  name on the scoresheet four times in the encounter.

Nigeria, who are gunning for their eighth  title this time,  won  the trophy thrice at Ghana’s expense. The Falcons beat the  Black Queens 2-0  in  the final of the  maiden edition of the championship in Abeokuta in 1998.
