Canada 2014: Falconets coach disappointed with 1-1 draw against Mexico

The class of 2010 did Nigeria proud

Dedevbo hopes the Nigerian women would improve in match with Korea Republic.

The Falconets coach, Peter Dedevbo, has expressed his disappointment with his team’s performance in its first match at the on-going FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.

The Falconets drew 1-1 against Mexico in the early hours of Thursday.

Speaking to journalists at the post- match conference, Dedevbo said, “There are some matches that, although you expect to win, you can’t manage to do so, and I’m a little bit disappointed today. But it was a good fight between the two teams.”

He noted that Mexico’s goalkeeper, Cecilia Santiago, was impressive and produced a good performance.

He said he wanted his team to improve for their next game against Korea Republic.

“Looking ahead to the next match, I want to work on every position on the field – goalkeeper, defence, midfield – but the most important thing we need to improve on is our finishing,” he said.
