Flamingoes coach won't underrate Colombia

19 March 2014, 10:59Israel Ojoko

San Jose - Coach Bala Nikyu has stated that the Flamingoes would not underrate their next Group D opponent, Colombia in their second game at the 2014 FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup after beating China 2-1 in their first game.

The Flamingoes will face Colombia on Wednesday 8pm local time (Thursday 3am Nigerian time) at the Alejandra Morera Soto stadium.

Coach Bala Nikyu said at the pre-match media conference that the Flamingoes will approach the game against the South Americans in a professional way.

“There is no and won't be any easy game at this tournament and we are not going to underrate Colombia because we beat China 2-1 and that Colombia lost 4-0 to Mexico," he said.

"We are going to approach the match against Colombia with more seriousness and improved performance than we had against China, because our objective is to win the first title for Nigeria.”

“We are looking forward to the next game against Colombia knowing well that all the teams at this championship are here based on merit,” he added.
