Abuja - Coach of the female U-20 Team Falconets, Peter
Dedevbo has dropped five players from camp for not meeting up to expectations.
The affected players are Sunshine Queens duo of Damilola
Koku and Funsho Ogunrinola, Onyema Ijeoma Bride who plies her trade for Bahrain
FC, Maria Oke of FC Robo, and Rosemary Okoro who plays her club football with Confluence
This brings to eleven the total number of players dropped.
It may interest us to know that The Falconets had been in
camp since May 2014 ahead of the FIFA U-20 Women's World cup scheduled for
Canada come August 5th-24th.
Dedevbo says the players did not exhibit the necessary
ability to be part of the team saying that the country must parade the best
legs for a respectable performance.
"I have worked with these girls for some time now and i
know their individual skills that's why i had to drop some along the way. I
want to make sure that when we storm Canada we should go with our best legs. I
also want to thank the girls for giving their best, just that only their best
wasn't good enough" he said.
Dedevbo further urged the remaining players in camp to show
more commitment and zeal as no player is guaranteed a place yet in the team.
The Falconets and Black princesses are African's
two representatives at the 2014 U-20 FIFA Women's World Cup.
