The Indomitable Lionesses and Super Falcons have met 10 times in the past, with just wins for the former.

Bihina, however, stated that the teams’ head-to-head record matters little this time around.

“Personally, I’m calm. We know that Nigeria are a great team, but we have what it takes to accomplish our mission” the Racing Power FC of Portugal goalie told FIFA.com.

The 20-year-old also highlighted the factors that could favour her side in the double header.

“Firstly, our squad, which is a mix of youth and experience. Bit by bit, things are coming together; we’re developing understandings and making our build-up play second nature, while also perfecting more and more the tactical formations put in place by our coach Jean-Baptiste Bisseck,”added Bihina.

“Secondly, I’d say the fact that we’re all motivated. We’ve frequently been unlucky in our games against Nigeria, so now it’s time for that to change.”
