Super Falcons will this evening square up against Cote d'Ivoire at the Estadio de Malabo in the group's last game of the ongoing Africa Women Championship in Equatorial Guinea.

Even though a draw would see the Falcons top Group B, the Kadiri Ikhana lead team is aiming at the maximum points so as to progress with the maximum points.

With six points from two victories recorded over Cameroon in the opening match and Ethiopia in their second match, the Falcons have since qualified for the semis but are not taking the match against Ivory Coast lightly.

Consequently, the coach Ikhana has said his girls will go for outright victory against the Ivoriens.

"The Super Falcons want to finish as group winners. A draw will give us the top spot but we're going all out for an emphatic win. We want a 100% record, that's what is on our minds right now.

"The Ivoriens are an aggressive side especially in the attack. They're a strong opposition and we have to be on top of our game to defeat them," he said.
