What Kgoale Nomvula said about Super Falcons and Nigeria weather

“It’s extremely important to be mentally tough. We know that Nigeria are a very tough opponent to play against…they’ve won Wafcon so many times and they’ve done well at the World Cups as well,” Kgoale told The Sowetan.

“Back at home the air is much thinner and over here it’s much heavier but personally I’ve played in the United States for almost six years, and I know how to play in this kind of weather… you almost feel like you are breathing heat. The grass is also heavier but I am sure that in two days’ time we would’ve adjusted.”

In a related development, Super Falcons’ head Coach, Randy Waldrum expressed his belief in his team’s potential.

The American identified his team as a “generational team” with the talent and depth to compete with the best in the world.

“This team is a generational team, no disrespect to the other teams, the talent and the depth that is coming into the team, which we saw in Australia (FIFA Women’s World Cup) against some of the best teams around the world,” Waldrum told NFF TV.
