Ottawa - Head coach of the Falconets Peter Dedevbo said the 2-1 victory against Korea has put Nigeria in a good position to qualify from the Group in the on-going FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.
Nigeria now has four points from two games in Group C.
"I feel very happy will this victory, after our first game we sat down and went back to the drawing board. Even the girls were disappointed with the first game. We had a strategy against Korea, you know they play the type of football we play, so we decided to play by throwing the ball forward because their defence always stands flat, we played fast."
He said this victory has given the team confidence to face the next match against England.
"We are not going to relax on this victory, the team will continue to train hard in order to clinch the three points against England. That will give us a comfortable lead."
