Falconets head coach Peter Dedevbo has assured Nigerians his girls will do better in their second Group C game against Korea Republic in ongoing 2014 Fifa U20 World Cup in Canada.
The African representatives played out a 1-1 draw with Mexico in their opening group game at the Moncton Stadium on Thursday morning.
In his post-match reaction, Dedevbo lamented his side’s inability to record victory against the El Tri, admitting the encounter against Mexico was tough for his ladies.
The former Flamingoes coach said his side will work towards improving in every departments of the team.
“There are some matches that, although you expect to win, you can’t manage to do so, and I’m a little bit disappointed today,” Dedevbo told Goal.
“But it was a good fight between the two teams. I have to say that Mexico’s goalkeeper, Cecilia Santiago, is impressive and produced a good performance today.
“Looking ahead to the next match I want to work on every position on the field – goalkeeper, defence, midfield, but the most important thing we need to improve on is our finishing,” he concluded.
Nigeria will take on their second Group C opponents, Korea Republic on 9th August at the Moncton Stadium, Canada.
