'Nigeria Will Probably Give Us A Hard Time' - France Coach Ahead Of Last Group Game Vs Super FalconsPublished: June 12, 2019
France coach Corinne Diacre expects a difficult game when they face Nigeria in their final Group A match at the Roazhon Park, Rennes on Monday, June 17.
The hosts maintained their one hundred percent record at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup this evening, beating Norway 2-1 thanks to Eugenie Le Sommer's game-winner from the spot 18 minutes from time.
Nigeria brightened their chances of making it to the knockout rounds following their 2-0 win against South Korea in
Speaking at the post-match press conference, Diacre said : ''As far as Nigeria team is concerned, I'm just looking at one match after another so I haven't thought yet about anything concrete on Nigeria.
''I am going to relax, think about it tomorrow, then we will reflect on things - what we can do, who may stay on the bench because we did have some injuries and let them recover.
''We are going to have to think about this long and hard''.
She added : ''Norway gave us a hard time, Nigeria will probably do the same. For the time being, now we are just going to stay put and fight hard to win that match against Nigeria''.
The Super Falcons need at least a draw against Les Bleues to be certain of progressing to the last sixteen.
