Falcons' German coach arrives

Technical assistant to the Super Falcons, Thomas Obliers arrived Nigeria on Monday and went straight to the Millennium hotel camp of the team.

Obliers, who was part of Falcons coaching crew at the just concluded FIFA Women World Cup believes that the overall performance of Falcons was good but they had problems scoring goals.

"The girls played well but they have to learn to score goals. If we had scored against France the tournament could have favoured us.

"Against Germany we had chances to score but could not utilize them. Our fitness was better than that of the Germans, I am surprised we didn't win that match and as for Canada we should have scored 3 to 4 goals.

"We had a strong team with good defence, good in endurance and marking ability.
The bottom line is that we didn't score goals. Scoring was our problem" the German said.

On Nigeria's chances to qualify for the London 2012 Olympics Obliers replied
by saying "Our performance at the world cup was very good. If we repeat same
performance then Cameroon stand no chance. It is going to be a tough match but I
know we will qualify," he said.
