Falconets coach: No training tour, no problem

24 July 2014, 16:00Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Falconets coach Peter Dedevbo is optimistic his team will give a good performance at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Canada despite their inability to embark on a training tour.

The team was earlier scheduled to travel on July 7 for a 24 day training tour of Canada, but failed to make the trip following the suspension slammed on Nigeria Football Federation by FIFA.

 But Dedevbo said he remains confident the team will perform well at the tournament despite the team's inability to embark on the training tour.

"Though we couldn't embark on the training tour on time, am optimistic the trainings the team got here in Abuja is equivalent to being on a pre-tournament tour.”

“The girls are mentally and physically fit, ready to take on the world," Dedevbo stated.

The Falconets are expected to depart Abuja for Canada on Thursday for the 2014 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup that holds between August 5 and 24.
