Flamingo talks up team-mates

21 March 2014, 10:09Israel Ojoko

San Jose - Flamingoes star, Ihuoma Onyebuchi has challenged strikers to rediscover their scoring boots against table toppers, Mexico, when both sides meet in the final group D clash, in the on-going FIFA U17 Women's World Cup on Sunday.

Onyebuchi who won the Most-Valuable Player award against Colombia missed getting her first goal of the tournament and the country's third of the day, after seeing her effort come off the wood work.

"I think with my strikers - I will expect them not to miss their opportunities in front of goal again in our next matches, let them step up their game and do what is right on the field of play," she demanded.

Earlier, she expressed delight at winning the MVP award though claimed she was not exceptional in the game and promised to give her best to get the country to the finals of the age-grade competition.

"I'm really happy winning the award, despite missing my goal opportunity, it’s not as if I played very well but it's just the grace of God that gave me the award. In the next match, I will put in my best and continue to fight more and not relent."

She however, declared that she and her team-mates are ready to make Nigerians proud by winning the last group D clash against Mexico on Monday.

"We will do well and defend our nation very well by winning the final group match and also qualify for the finals," she concluded.
