Head coach of Nigeria’s women senior national team, Florence Omagbemi, has vowed to shut out Cameroon and their home support, when they take on the hosts in the final of the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations on Saturday.
Both teams have remained unbeaten in the competition so far and Cameroon will be desperate to win the trophy for the first time in their history.
The Falcons, who are also the defending champions, have lifted it a record nine times since its inception in 1991.
“Winning the trophy remains the major objective of the team at the tournament. Like I said after we defeated Mali 6-0 that we want to take each game as they come and I am delighted we are where we want to be at this stage of the competition,” Omagbemi said.
“Yes, the Indomitable Lionesses have done enough to be in the final, however, we are simply relaxed regardless of the fact that they are the host nation.
“I quite agree that the fans are their twelfth player, but then,we have mapped out plans on how we will silence the home crowd and eventually win the trophy on Saturday.”
