The Falconets are prepared to face the herculean task of beatjng China in their final group game at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup on Monday, according to coach Chris Danjuma.
Nigeria will reach the quarter-finals for the seventh time in nine editions if they avoid defeat against the Chinese at the Stade de Clos Gastel.
A lone strike from the penalty spot, by stand-in skipper Rasheedat Ajibade, earned the maximum points against Haiti last Thursday.
The result moves the Falconets to second spot in Group D, on a superior goals from third place China.
“It is going to be a very busy encounter from the first blast of the whistle,” Danjuma told thenff.com.
“We are not expecting an easy match. I said from the beginning that if we must reach the final, we have to play and overcome very tough teams.
“We have no illusions. The Chinese squad is a very ambitious one, and we have to be at our best to overcome them. We will go out there and give our very best.”
