Falconets coach decries poor officiating

09 June 2014, 19:15Israel Ojoko

Accra – Head coach of Super Falcons, Peter Dedevbo has attributed the team's 1-0 defeat to the Black Princesses to poor officiating and Ghana's determination to win at all course.

The Ghanaian U-20 women National team, Sunday had a 1-0 win over their Nigerian counterpart, The Falconets in another friendly match played at the Tema stadium Ghana.

The Black Princesses scored the only goal of the match in the 15th minute through Fatima Alhassan spotting jersey no 4.

The match which was earlier scheduled for Liberty stadium Dansoman could not take place because of the deplorable state of the facility. The Tema municipal Stadium then hosted the two teams.

"The Ghanaian side played robust football forcing the Falconets to play with caution," Dedevbo said.

"I will work on the lapses noticed in the two matches played against the Ghanaian side."

The Falconets and the Ghanaian side are to play four friendlies before the world cup.

The remaining two matches will take place in Nigeria from 20th -22nd June 2014.

Nigeria won the first match by 2 goals to 1.
