Dedevbo unimpressed with Falconets’ 14-1 win over Liberia

27 July 2015, 11:10

Port Harcourt – Nigeria’s Falconets coach Peter Dedevbo says he is unimpressed with his team’s overall display despite beating Liberia 14-1 on aggregate in a FIFA women’s U20 World Cup qualifier.

The Falconets beat their Liberian counterparts 7-1 in Monrovia two weeks ago and capped it up with a 7-0 win over the same opponents last weekend in Abuja.

But Dedevbo, despite admitting he was happy with his team’s performance in the second half of the second leg, insisting it wasn’t the best play from his team.

“To be honest with you I was disappointed with the way we played,” Dedevbo began.

“It is not just about the number of goals we scored, but how we played and I thought we didn’t play too well in half of the second leg.

“I was very disappointed but I have to give glory to God because we played better in the second half but overall we didn’t play well.

“After the first leg I thought this second leg would give me the opportunity to see what these players can do against Congo because the Congolese are a better side but I didn’t really see that,” Dedevbo stressed.

Nigeria will play Congo in the next round of the qualifiers for the 2016 U20 World Cup which holds in Papua New Guinea.
