Canada 2014: Falconets confident against Korea Republic

The head coach of the Nigeria U-20 women’s football team, Peter Dedevbo, has expressed his confidence that the team will record a resounding victory over Korea Republic at the on-going FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup, Canada 2014.

This is the Falconets second match in the tournament. The team drew in its opening match against Mexico on Wednesday.

With all four teams in group C on equal points, Coach Dedevbo said the Falconets are better positioned to take the lead over the Koreans.

According to a press statement by the spokesperson of the team, Elizabeth Carr, the coach said, “After the first match, I have been working on the goal scoring act of the players. We have many scoring chances which the players throw away. I don’t want a repeat of that. We must get three points out of this game to claim a lead.”

The coach noted that the technical crew has been on the drawing board assessing the last game and re-strategising the team’s tactics.

“We had to redesign our strategies for improved performance. The Korean team is good; that is why I had to change my tactics. I promise a better outing for the team. I want Nigerians to pray and support the team,” he said.

The match comes up today by 5 p.m. Canadian time and 9 p.m. Nigeria time at the Moncton Stadium; the same place the Falconets played Mexico.
