Coach of the Falconets, Peter Dedevbo, has made it clear that his players are aiming for nothing but a win, when they face England in the last group game of the ongoing FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
Nigeria, who currently top Group C with four points, drew 1-1 with Mexico in their first match, before defeating Korea Republic 2-1 in Moncton.
Dedevbo commended the girls for their impressive displays so far, but urged them to keep it up.
“They (the girls) are here in Canada to win the World Cup, so I cannot relax on the win against Korea Republic,” Dedevbo said.
“The English team is equally good to have qualified and thus the team must be adequately prepared. I want nothing less than a win against England.
“I am happy the strategy used in the match against Korea worked, this time around I am going to to introduce a new style of play. I must commend the girls for their fearless fight, and am happy there are no injuries among the girls.”
The Falcots will play England on Wednesday by 6pm local time (1am Nigeria time).
