He advised them to keep it tight and remain focused, to reach their set-up target.
Assistant coach, National under-17 Team, Haruna Ilerika said the girls were seriously trying their best.
Coach Ilerika urged them to keep the flag flying because It was not easy to have played two matches and won.
“We are not sure of qualification yet even though we think we have qualified but till after the last group game that is when we know and we could say whether if we have qualified or not,” he said.
However, the system and strategies adopted by the team in the first two games showed that they had lots of qualities in training and the coaches in the team did wonderfully well on the girls.
He said the players’ marking abilities were excellent, observing that they attacked in mass and didn’t loose focus and their recovery rate was superb.
“ They have this ability to be able to chase the opponent around and don’t allow the opponents to play.
He said the approach made them to subdue their opponents from playing because they knew most of these opponents’ tactics and were quite good in ball distribution, compared to any African side.
“ They were able to frustrate both Korean and France teams from their techniques and allowed them to resort to playing our own techniques because the more we frustrated them the more it becomes advantage to us in the game.
“ They ( falconets) are now becoming a dangerous team to play, which makes them a good team. The spirit of oneness in the team, let it continue,” he said.
“Falconets are playing on Thursday, if we get a draw at most, but if we win, we are happy.
“ We have played in the past; we played on the final twice and much is expected of them. I want to wish them best of luck as they go out in their next game,” he said.
A teacher and football lover, Oluwaseun Adetunberu, urged the falconets to keep their eyes on winning the title.
He said next stage of the competition would be our challenges and this would be tougher than those they had surmounted.
