My target is to qualify for world cup – Dennerby


Super Falcons of Nigeria begin their title defence tomorrow in Cape Coast stadium Ghana against old rival Bayana Bayana of South Africa in a match that a whole lot of people has tagged final before the final clash.

Thomas Dennerby is not losing sleep towards the match because he has set target for himself  in the tournament ” my main target in this tournament is to first secure FIFA world cup ticket for 2019 women’s world cup and possibly win the trophy.

Dennerby who admitted that as defending champions, his team could be under pressure going into this tournament because every other team wants to beat Super Falcons but he is old enough to absolve the pressure, ” to be a champion, you will always want to defend your title, but I am an old man and I am used to the pressure said the 59 years old Swedish tactician.


The Super Falcons will begin their search for the 9th title against Bayana Bayana tomorrow in a clash of giants by 4.30pm Nigerian time.
