Former Super Falcons forward, Stella Mbachu, has backed the Nigerian women’s team to beat Germany when both sides meet in the round of 16 of the Women’s World Cup on Saturday.
Recall that Nigeria were drawn against the two-time World Cup winners after qualifying as one of the best losers from the group stage.
In an interview with Sports Extra, Mbachu said, “With the way we played France, if we are able to play Germany that way, and even better, honestly, we will beat them.
“Remember when we played Germany the last time, they only beat us 1-0, which came through a controversial free-kick they gave to them. So, they (Falcons) should just concentrate, with that, I believe they will win. Football is not the way people use to think about it that it’s one plus one, it’s gone beyond that.”
“He should just encourage them, because the coach has already done all that he needs to do, what’s left is just to encourage them and ginger them up,” she added.
The game against Germany will be played at the Stade des Alpes in Grenoble, France 4:30pm Nigerian time.
