Flamingoes striker hailed

17 March 2014, 18:05Israel Ojoko

San Jose - Flamingoes striker, Rasheedat Ajibade has been hailed by head coach Bala Nikyu for her outstanding display in Nigeria’s opening game against China at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.

Ajibade scored one of the two goals and was voted the Most Valuable Player as Nigeria handed a 2-1 defeat to China.

"I think she will do well, though I expect her to do better than this in the second or last group match but for the game against Costa Rica, she tried”.

“By the time you play the second or third game in a competition you must improve match after match and when you are able to win the first match you are able to play more relax in the next," Nikyu said concerning Ajibade.

Nigeria will look to secure a firm grasp atop the group D when they take on Colombia by 8pm Costa Rica time on Wednesday evening, which is 3am Nigerian time on Thursday morning.
