Nigeria is just a name – Mwakapila


Shepolopolo of Zambia winger Mary Mwakapila, has boasted that Nigeria is just a name that is beatable. Mwakapila during the pre match press conference held at Cape Coast stadium today said that there is nothing special about Nigeria, they have good players likewise them and play same football like them.

” Nigeria is just a name even though they are defending champions, they have good players like us and play same football, we will beat them tomorrow”

Mwakapila who was full of confidence said she is inspired to beat Super Falcons because she was part of the team the last time they suffered 6 – 0 defeat against Nigeria in 2014 and she doesn’t want it to repeat again.

“I’m very happy to meet Nigeria because the last time we met in 2014, Nigeria defeated us six nil and this made me to come up that Nigeria won’t beat us this time around”.


Mwakapila went on to say that Nigeria has notable players like Asisat Oshoala, Francesca Ordega and Desire Oparanozie but they won’t show respect to them on the pitch tomorrow because they want to win the trophy and know what it feels like to be a champion.

” I know good players like Oshoala, Ordega and Oparanozie but we won’t respect them on the pitch, we want to win the trophy and know how it feels to be a champion like Nigeria”

Shepolopolo of Zambia will meet Super Falcons of Nigeria tomorrow ( Wednesday) by 4.30pm at Cape Coast stadium.
