South Africa Bayana Bayanan is not afraid of Nigeria, the Head coach Desiree Ellis, says her wards are not afraid of the defending champions, Nigeria, as they will play Super Falcons like any other team in the Africa Women Championship in the semi-final on November 29, 2016.
“I don’t think I had to motivate the players because they knew what was at stake. If you want to win you have to play against all teams. We have to plan for Nigeria. It doesn’t matter which team we play,” she said.
Holders Nigeria and Ghana completed the line-up for the semi-finals after convincing wins in their ultimate Group B matches on Saturday.
Nigeria’s Super Falcons put four goals past debutants Kenya in Limbe to finish tops in Group B whilst Ghana overcame Mali in the other fixture in Yaounde. Both teams finished on seven points apiece with the Falcons on top courtesy superior goals. Mali garnered three points and Kenya in the order pointless.
Nigeria got off the better of the two teams and taking a two-goal lead after only seven minutes capitalising on the sloppy Kenyan defence.
For the semis, host Cameroon will face Ghana in Yaounde while Nigeria battles South Africa in Limbe.
