Falconets head coach, Peter Dedevbo, has said the Falconets are prepared to tackle the Korean side in the semi-finals of the FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup taking place on Wednesday at the Moncton Stadium.
Nigeria qualified for the round of four after a thrilling 4-1 win over New Zealand in the quarter finals played on Sunday.
In a press statement, the team’s spokesperson, Elizabeth Carr, quoted Dedevbo as saying the team was preparing hard to face the Korean side.
“The higher you go in football, the harder it becomes. I don’t want to leave any stone unturned in the match against Korea. I am very much aware that the Koreans are fast on counter attack and that is why the girls were
not given a day off. We have to perfect our possession and control as well as make sure we get an early goal which will unsettle them,” Dedevbo said.
On the tactics to adopt, the coach says the first minutes of the match would determine the tactics to be employed.
“I don’t want to disclose my strategies, the game will determine how we play, but I want to tell Nigerians that the team is confident and ready to take on any team,” Dedevbo said.
