Dedevbo optimistic on Falcons rebirth



Flamingoes coach, Peter Dedevbo said the Super Falcons stand a chance of grabbing this year's Caf women's national team of the year award.

Caf on Tuesday listed the reigning African champions, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana's Under17 team that finished third at the Fifa Under17 World Cup in Azerbaijan and the Super Falcons that finished in fourth spot at the 8th AWC in Equatorial Guinea as candidates for the coveted award.

The continent's football body will decide on the winners on December 20 in Accra, Ghana.

Dedevbo said the Falcons' dismal performance at the just concluded African Women's Championship may not rob the team of the award.

"Though I don't know how Caf will arrive at the winners but I believe the Super Falcons inability to win the 8th AWC title won't put them at a disadvantage in the race for the award.

"I believe there would be other criteria of arriving at the winners other than victory at the AWC.

"The Falcons have been doing very well before the AWC in Equatorial Guinea, so I'm confident they have a bright chance at clinching the award.

"For the fact that Ghana's Under17 side at the just concluded Fifa Under17 World Cup were listed means the sole determinant won't be performance at AWC.

"The Falcons even though they've been dethroned as African champions by Equatorial Guinea remain a powerhouse in women's football on the continent," said the Delta Queens' chief coach to supersport.com.

Dedevbo on Tuesday guided his wards to retain the women's league title at the Super Six final at the expense of bitter foes, Rivers Angels.
