OSINACHI OHALE : I was not part of the team that lost 2 years ago but we are sure going for victory.Nothing more than victory.
ASISAT OSHOALA : Two years ago at the 3rd place match we lost to Cameroon in a match we thought we would have salvaged something.I am thinking revenge.I think it's good to meet them again back to back just like what happened with South Africa,so I think we will give the same fight we gave to South Africa.We will win but I don't know by what score line.
DESIRE OPARANOZIE : I am not exactly thinking revenge because I don't see them stopping us.The team I feared before we arrived for the AWC was South Africa but that is done and dusted now.We are definitely coming out victorious,we will win the trophy,I can't say this is the exact scoreline but I know we are winning.

UGO NJOKU: Cameroon are our regular bitter foes and they know that we know how to handle them. They will be tough and will want to beat us and win the AWC for the first time but we will not give them room to get any where near the trophy. Cameroon will fall by the grace of God.
NGOZI OKOBI: Having worked so hard to reach the final, we will not allow Cameroon to spoil things for us. We are focussed and will give the final game all our efforts to ensure that we win the cup and go to the world cup in Canada as the queens of Africa. in 2012 they beat us in the third place match, it is our turn to revenge and they must lose.
