USA striker Abby Wambach has revealed how they will deal with the threat of the Super Falcons when they clash in their final FIFA Women’s World Cup group match in Vancouver on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old top scorer for the USA told Fox Sport that despite the difficulties they might encounter in the course of the game, they have what it takes to come out tops.
“They’re a physically capable team—they’re fast, they’re strong. For us, we’re just going to have to weather some of their speed in the first 45 minutes,” the veteran said.
“Frankly, we have such a deep bench, we have the ability to completely change our line-up if our coaching staff so chooses.”
Meanwhile, Falcons will be without defender Ugo Njoku, who was suspended three games for elbowing Australia forward Samantha Kerr.
Njoku came on as a substitute in the match but did not play in Nigeria’s 3-3 draw against Sweden.
