Abuja - Falconets head coach, Peter Dedevbo, says the girls
played as a team in a 1-0 victory over the Black Princesses of Ghana.
"I am impressed with the team's performance today,
there was cohesion among the players,they put on a tremendous fight. Though I
was not concerned about goals, but rather the physic and mental capability of
the team since this is a friendly. The goal however, came and am so happy."
He added that the team needs to improve on ball finishing.
"They had many scoring chances, but could not execute
them well. We shall work on that before the world cup."
Ghanaian head coach, Bashir Hayford, said the Nigerian side
played very well. He further praised his girls and hoped that with the
preparations both teams will shine in Canada.
"We lost to a better side, but remember the
Falconets are playing at home which was an added advantage. We are going back
with some lessons to work on the team for better performance."
