Dennerby who spoke to at the NFF Secretariat,  said he wants to be the first Africa female football coach to beon  the podium.

The Falcons tactician also stated that winning Cote d’Ivoire in the next round of the Olympics qualifier both home and away would not be a problem having played them severally in the past.

” I know the Ivoiren  ladies are good but not a threat to the Super Falcons in our quest to qualify for 2020 Tokyo Olympics.  Though against Algeria I was not particularly happy with the standard of play partIcularly at home but I blame it on the attitude of the players having won 2 -0 away took the return leg for granted, “said Dennerby

He also revealed that winning a medal at the Olympics especially gold will be a compensation for the unimpressive world cup outing which the Falcons managed as one of the best losers to advance from the group stage.
