24 March 2014, 20:46Israel Ojoko

San Jose - Flamingoes assistant coach, Ann Chiejine has assured Nigerians they would not get distracted by the 100 percent success recorded and progressing to the quarter-finals at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.

Nigeria defeated Mexico with a deserved 3-0 scoreline with goals from Rasheedat Ajibade, Uchenna Kanu and Aminat Yakubu helping the African giants to leapfrog their opponents at the top of Group D and set up a quarter-final showdown with Spain.

In her reactions after the game, Chiejine insisted that the Nigeria U17 women would not get overwhelmed by the victories recorded at the group stage as they are focused on approaching all their subsequent matches like they were finals.

“We won’t leave any stone unturned and we will continue from there (three victories). We won’t say because we have won the three games we are happy and will take all the games at it come”.

“In the game against Spain we would play it as if it the last game we’re playing,” the former Super Falcons goalkeeper said.

On what was behind the Flamingoes’ amazing start, the Nigeria’s assistant coach pointed out hard work, insisting the team’s progress was no surprise owing to the quality of preparation they had.

“It not a surprise to me, because we have worked towards it that is why we were able to come out as top of the team and we will continue working until the end of the competition. It’s not a new thing, I already know because of the hard work which we are going to end with a trophy home.”

Nigeria play Spain on Thursday in the quarter final.
