The coach of the Super Falcons, Edwin Okon had charged Nigeria’s women under-20 national team, the Faloconets not to be disappointed with the result of their first group match against Mexico which ended in a 1-1 draw in the ongoing FIFA under -20 World Cup.
The coach who led the Falconets to a semi final finish in the last tournament in Japan, said the girls must work hard to ensure that they win their remaining matches in the group, which is very important if they want to progress in the competition.
– I am praying for Peter Dedevbo and his girls to win their remaining matches, to firstly boost the confidence of the girls to qualify from their group, and do the nation proud.
– Thank God they did not lose their first match so they should pick themselves up and claim the maximum points for the remaining matches.
– We know they won all their matches in qualifying for the World Cup but they must guard against complacency if they must progress.
– The World Cup is a different ball game and the girls must remain focused and double their efforts to emerge from the group, he stated.
Coach Okon stressed that he would be praying for the team on behalf of the entire Super Falcons players and officials, adding that hopefully the Falconets will do the country proud in Canada.
