Falcons coach expects more from African champions (image courtesy NFF)

Thomas Dennerby is unhappy that African champions Nigeria failed to be more ruthless in front of goal in their 4-0 mauling of Zambia at the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.

The Super Falcons needed a strong response against the Shepolopolo after losing 1-0 to South Africa in their Group B opener on Sunday.

And goals from Desire Oparanozie, Francisca Ordega, Rashidat Ajibade and Amarachi Okoronkwo took the team to second spot.

But star striker Asisat Oshoala was, again, guilty of missing many clear-cut chances on Wednesday in Cape Coast, Ghana.

“First of all, I am very happy we managed to score four goals in this game but honestly I am not 100 percent happy with our performance because we should have scored more goals,” Dennerby told newsmen.

“After our opening game in which we lost, I talked about being professional and using experience to come back in the next game, not being anxious and work on hard.”

The Falcons will next take on Equatorial Guinea on Saturday, while Zambia confront their neighbours South Africa.

A win for Nigeria will confirm their place in the semi-finals.
