Nigeria’s U-20 team coach, Christopher Danjuma has warned the team not to play to the gallery against Tanzania in Saturday’s 2018 U-20 women’s World Cup qualifier at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.
The team failed to cross the group stages of the last edition of the World Cup that was hosted in Papua New Guinea, however, Danjuma believes qualifying first remains the main priority of the team and they need to win well against Tanzania.
“We have players who participated in the last FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup and few others who are still within the age brackets from the last U-20 World Cup. I believe their experience coupled with the good training we have had in Abuja before coming to Benin City for Saturday’s match would
certainly give us the edge against Tanzania,” Danjuma told CAFOnline.com.
“We have told the girls how important it is for us to win very well on Saturday. The good thing is that Nigeria remains one of the strongest teams at this level and we hope to continue with the
same tradition of winning our matches come Saturday,” he affirmed.
