Super Falcons defender, Michelle Alozie, is mentally preparing herself for a challenging encounter against England in the round of 16 clash at the ongoing 2023 Women’s World Cup. The match is scheduled to take place at the Lang Park in Brisbane.
England has been in impressive form throughout the tournament, winning all three of their group stage matches with ease. They have emerged as one of the favorites to win the competition, and their performances have caught the attention of football fans worldwide.
Alozie acknowledged the difficulty of the upcoming game but also emphasized that the Super Falcons are no strangers to tough matches. In their previous group stage encounters, they faced strong opponents like Canada, and they are well aware of the intensity and competitiveness required in knockout matches.
“We know it’s going to be a hard game, just like our previous matches. We started with Canada, which was a tough battle, and we expect nothing less from England,” Alozie said in a video interview posted on the Super Falcons’ Twitter handle.
The right-back is confident that her team is mentally prepared for the challenge ahead and will give their all on the pitch. With a spot in the quarter-finals at stake, both teams will be determined to secure a victory.
“It is obviously a knockout round, and we are ready to put up a battle. We expect a battle from them, and we will give them everything we have,” Alozie added.
