Super Falcons head coach Thomas Dennerby wants his team to convert their chances when they face Equatorial Guinea.

Super Falcons boss Thomas Dennerby has stated that Nigeria will not underestimate Equatorial Guinea when both sides meet in their final group game of the 2018 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (AWCON).

The Super Falcons won their second group game against Zambia 4-0 while Equatorial Guinea lost out 7-1 to the Bayana Bayana of South Africa.

The two sides are set to meet with the Super Falcons eyeing a spot in the semi-finals of the competition while Equatorial Guinea is out of the competition regardless of the result as they lost their opening two games.

Equatorial Guinea has conceded 12 goals in the competition, seven against South Africa and five against the Shepolopolo of Zambia.

Dennerby, however, is not aiming to take the game for granted as he wants his team to produce their best performance in the encounter.

Dennerby who criticised the Super Falcons for missing chances in their win against Zambia stated that no changes will be made to the team.

He said, “We are not doing any changes. We are working on as we have done from the beginning. Going to training sessions to prepare the team, have pre/post match meetings and watch videos of the others, so we know how to play and so on.”

Veteran midfielder Rita Chikwelu who was at the press conference with Dennerby stated that they just want to win and progress to the next round.
