Abuja - Super Falcons assistant Coach, Ann Chiejine, says
the friendly game between the Nigeria's U-17 Women National Team and her team
was never about winning but to assess her team.
"For us, we are trying to build the team. The way they
played together as a team, the transition in the passes, the depth inside,
those were the things we were interested in.
"This is why we need a series of friendly matches to
really help the girls. Yes, we played a 1-1 draw. It's not a big deal. It's not
something to be panicking about. We played with a team that has been in camp
and playing competitive games within the past four months, unlike ourselves that
just came to camp about two weeks ago."
