Oluwole, who is in charge of Tokas Queen Football Club of Lagos, said the more Falcons progress, the tougher it will be for them, adding that if the team remain focused and play to their coach’s instruction, the sky wil be their limit.

“The Falcons are one of the favourites to win the tournament, but we should not forget the fact that a competition of this magnitude can pull surprises if care is not taken. I did not watch their first game but the report I read showed that the ladies are hungry for success, “he said.

Oluwole advised the coaching crew to correct the grey areas in the team before their next match. He noted that the coach needs to review their first match and come out with another strategy for their next match.
