Falconets boss Dedevbo axes players

01 July 2015, 16:18

Lagos - In continuation of his build-up to the upcoming FIFA U20 Women's World Cup Qualifiers against Liberia, Falconets head coach, Peter Dedevbo has dropped no fewer than five players from the team's camp in Abuja, a top official of the team reliably informed News24.

Names of the dropped players wasn't revealed by the official.

According to the official: “These players have done very well. They must keep working hard and improving on their talents because they definitely have that.

“They all have a future with the various national sides and we have encouraged them to go back to their clubs and be productive.”

According to the official, competition for spots keeps players on their toes as they realize that the team will be picked on form.

“It is important that we have competition in all departments. This will keep everyone on her toes. There is no room for complacency.

“We have good players in the team and that gives the technical crew options.

Falconets will begin their quest for a place at the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup against Liberia next month.

The current squad will be aiming to surpass the feats of their predecessors, starting with the opening qualifier against Liberia, who beat Sierra Leone for the right to face Nigeria, in the quest for a ticket to next year's competition to be held in Papua New Guinea.
