The defender described the support from Nigerians and their fans as the biggest motivation to the team.

Glory Ogbonna, Super Falcons defender, said the team is determined to win their 10th Women Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco, to remain the dominant team on the continent.“We want to win the trophy for a record 10th time to remain the dominant force in Africa Women football,” she told journalists from the team’s base in Casablanca, Morocco.

“Beyond Africa, we are also looking at winning the Women World Cup,” she added.

She described their 1– 0 victory against Cameroonians on Thursday as a difficult game and stressed that they were prepared to face the host team in the Semi finals.

“Like I have previously said, there is no longer a small team in Africa and moreover that the Cameroonians are also one of the biggest teams in Africa.

“We won that game with determination to qualify for the World Cup and also enhance our chances of retaining the Africa Women trophy that we last won,” she said.

Ogbonna maintained that while the Falcons respected the host country, they were, however, not losing any sleep over the semi final match with them.

“We are very focused on our next match which incidentally is against the host team,” Ogbonna said.
