He said Zambia has good players but the Falcons have the experience to humble them.

Dennerby disclosed that the Nigerian girls have been able to overcome taking decisions slowly during the field of play, which cost them to lose chances of scoring during the clash with South Africa last Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Coach of She-polopolo, Bruce Mwape said that his team will clinch the first semi-final ticket in Group B when they take on the Super Falcons.
