Unuanel hails Falconets

13 October 2015, 10:28

Abuja - Coach Samson Unuanel has praised the Peter Dedevbo tutored Nigeria U20 side after they boosted their 2016 World Cup qualification hopes with a 4-1 aggregate victory over DR Congo girls in Abuja.

A goal in each half from in-form Delta Queens striker completed a double swoop for the Falconets who also won 2-1 in Kinshasa in the first leg encounter.

The Falconets sealed qualification to the final round of next year's finals to be hosted by Papua New Guinea after winning 2-0 in front of less than 500 fans on Saturday.

Nigeria made it through on a 4-1 aggregate score line after beating DR Congo 2-1 in the first leg encounter a fortnight ago in Kinshasa.

“The girls continued to make us proud and winning again against a tough side like DR Congo shows how good they are,” the ex-Ocean Boys and Niger Tornadoes gaffer told News24.

“They went to Kinshasa with a winning mentality and completed the job here in Abuja so I think they did so well and deserve some commendation.

“What the Nigeria Football Federation need is to motivate and adequately prepare the girls for the final round of the qualifiers against South Africa.

“Obviously, we will be tagged as favourites going into the two-legged games but we just have to be cautious and guard against complacency to ensure we win and qualify,” the former Kwara United head coach added.

Two teams will qualify to represent Africa at the 2016 FIFA U20 Women's World in Papua New Guinea.
