Head coach of France’s national women team, Corinne Diacre, has predicted that the Super Falcons of Nigeria will give her side a hard time when both sides clash in their final Group A fixture on Monday night at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The Les Bleues will tackle the Thomas Dennerby’s side at the Stade de la Route de Lorient Stadium in France.
The hosts head to the match after defeating Norway 2-1 on Wednesday, while Nigeria defeated South Korea 2-0.
”As far as Nigeria team is concerned, I’m just looking at one match after another so I haven’t thought yet about anything concrete on Nigeria,” Diacre was quoted by Allnigeriasoccer as saying ahead of France’s clash against Nigeria.
”I am going to relax, think about it tomorrow, then we will reflect on things – what we can do, who may stay on the bench because we did have some injuries and let them recover.
”We are going to have to think about this long and hard.
”Norway gave us a hard time, Nigeria will probably do the same. For the time being, now we are just going to stay put and fight hard to win that match against Nigeria.”
