07 August 2014, 16:24Israel Ojoko

Ottawa - Head coach of Nigeria U-20 women team the Falconets, Peter Dedevbo says he will re-strategize to put the team ahead of their opponents.

This is coming after the team's frustrating 1-1 draw against the Mexicans at the ongoing FIFA U-20 women's world cup.

Dedevbo says he will work on the team tactics from ball control, passes to finishing.

"Is like every other match, at times in some matches, what you expect to see or when you plan your strategies and it does not work out for you, you feel a bit disappointed. There is no problem, it happens like that in most first matches of every competition. The team gave in their best."

He said the U-20 women has always draw their opening matches.
