2023: What Super Falcons must do to beat England – Akide

In their 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup last-16 match, the team must contain England attacker Lauren James, according to former Super Falcons striker Mercy Akide.

To stop the Chelsea star, according to Akide, will be essential for the Super Falcons to get to the quarterfinals.

One of the notable performers has been James.

For the Three Lionesses, the forward has so far contributed three goals and three assists.

In England’s offensive, she has forged a powerful alliance with Lauren Hemp and Rachel Daly.

Akide, a three-time FIFA World Cup participant for Nigeria, said it was critical for the Super Falcons to prevent James from wrecking havoc on their team.

“She [James] is very technical in front of goal,” Akide remarked.

They can’t give her even a millimeter since she can control the ball and hit it accurately.

She performs with great grace. I find it fascinating just to watch her do that. Our guys must mark her tightly because she makes football look so simple, according to Akide, who spoke to ESPN.

Monday’s match between England and Nigeria will take place at Lang Park in Brisbane. It will begin at 8.30 a.m. Nigerian time.
