Can Ethiopia Upset The Super Falcons in Abuja?

According to BSN Sports, the NFF will open the gates of National Stadium in Abuja free for fans to watch the game gratis. 

This is a noble gesture that should allow for a packed stadium but it will be great for the Glass House to go one extra by beaming the match live on YouTube with quality, uninterrupted pictures. is also reporting that Fifa has paid Super Falcons World Cup emoluments to NFF guaranteeing each player no less than 72 million Naira. 

Great news; I hope the players receive their world cup mazuma in a timely manner. 

For tomorrow's match, I recommend you to the Super Falcons work on the following areas:

  1. Crosses: Super Falcons need to deliver better quality deliveries from the flanks. These were not well manufactured in the 1st leg. 

  2. Early Dominance: The Super Falcons should be aggressive from the off to make early statements and set the tone for the remainder of the encounter. 

  3. Conversion ratio: Wastefulness in front of goal should be eschewed. The Super Falcons must be razor sharp in burying chances. 

  4. Defensive sloppiness: Concentration at the back should eliminate the silliness that gave rise to Ethiopia's opening first leg goal. 

  5. Authority and Intent: The Super Falcons have the quality to dictate play and Impose their will on the opponents. These should be accomplished. 

For me, there is no upset in the cards. 

Even without their regular Coaching Shepherd, the Super Falcons sheep and their stand-in coaching crew have more than enough to get the job done in Abuja! 

The winner over two legs will take on the winner of the Cameroon/Uganda fixture in the third round of the series.
