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
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.
