2022 U-20 WWC: ‘How Falconets Overcame South Korea’ —Danjuma

2022 U-20 WWC: ‘How Falconets Overcame South Korea’  —Danjuma

Head coach of Nigeria’s Falconets Christopher Danjuma has explained his team were able to defeat South Korea in their second Group C game at the 2022 FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup.

The Falconets netted another late goal as they edged South Korea 1-0 thanks to a wonder goal by Esther Onyenezide on 83 minutes.

It is now back-to-back wins for Danjuma and his team who kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 win against France.

And reacting to the win against the Koreans Danjuma, in a video clip published on the Super Falcons Twitter handle:“Football is about building your own tactics as it suits you. Playing against the Korean team, if they find space they run and there are certain areas in the field they use to make incursion into your box.

“So what we did was to make sure they didn’t come through that area and thank God it helped us.“

The Falconets’ next game is against Canada, who lost 3-1 to France in their second fixture.

And speaking ahead of the game, Danjuma said:”We will approach every match one based on the importance of that match and the opponent we are playing.“

    We qualified for the quarter finals with a game to spare.

    On a side note, did I miss the report of Ghana’s 2:0 loss to Japan, or is it that Complete Sports did not report it?

    • @Bonboy,
      Don’t mind Ghana. They always qualify for competitions through dubious ways and stopped those that would have done Africa proud to represent Africa.

      Once again, congratulations Nigeria.

      Congratulations Africa.

      Congratulations girls.

      We are proud of you all.

        Talk of Nigeria’s success and don’t insult Ghana that way.Remember, football is a very funny game. One’s array of fearsome stars does not always ensure victory.

        Please stop crying over the WC ticket you lost to Ghana and hope for a better future for the senior Eagles.

        Olosi up all you ghanian talk about is juju. It us all you do to win games. Our girls are well prepared, we don’t even need you fake well wishes.

    • Bomboy, the thing tire me o! I don’t know why CSN didn’t run the story.

      Ghana 0: Nigeria 2.

      And guess what, Ghana’s girls are a hybrid of home and foreign based players but our girls are purely homebased.

    Let us learn to leave Ghana alone, comparing ourselves to them will only draw us backwards. Let us focus and continue moving upwards instead of comparing ourselves to them.

    • Dada Awuru 2 years ago

      Definitely we cannot compare ourselves to that mediocre stinking black monkeys. 

      They are horrible creatures.

  • Chris Danjuma should be the one taking us to the world cup, not this clueless Waldrum….congratulations girls and the technical team

      Nigerians sometimes come across are very naive. When will Nigerians get it through their heads that there is a BIG difference between age grade football and senior team football? We just went through a harrowing experience with the Qatar WC qualifier against Ghana and saw how poor the likes of Amunike, Eguavoen and co were with the Super Eagles, after recording success with the U17 and U20 mens teams. But that wasn’t enough for you… Now you want the same for the Falcons?

      So, when this same Danjuma was in charge of the Falcons a few years ago, and with all the Falcon Super stars at his disposal, he failed miserably against Ivory Coast for an easy Olympic ticket.

      Now its this same one you want to go back to? Mshew!

      • Godwin 2 years ago

        Failed miserably you say! You call someone a week and some days to take over a team and then you demand good result. There is no magic in football my friend. You get good results when you prepare well. Don’t blame the Coach mr.

  • Ayoola 2 years ago

    I am sorry about our conversion rate. Two goals in two matches.

    Listen, to any Ghanaians on here commenting – get this into your thick heads –
    Ghana has never been and never will be so blessed as to be considered equals to Nigeria in Anything – You go around the World and ask anybod, you choose them and let’s ask them a general question that in their eyes – which of Nigeria or Ghana are the greater African sporting Nation and you will not fins a single person (go all around the world o!, you even choose the people and places to go and ask, ask all around the four corners of this universe and I can guarantee you of what the responses will be to the level of 100%!
    Is it Football? Olympics? Commonwealth Games? Basketball? Athletics? Boxing? MMA? Music? Female Sports? Female Football? Great Scholastic Achievements (Nigeria dominates), The Arts? Culture? Tradition? Pedigree? swag? I can go on all day but I really do not have the time simply let me divulge this to all Ghanaians on here for free, it is the ones who constantly engage with ya’ll who I blame, Really and Truly, Us Nigerian’s have never and still do not generally give a s***t about Ghanaians or anything Ghanaian because it is too far beneath where we operate and those are the simple FACTS!

    With what I have seen of the falconents they are pretty good and deserve to go through to the next stage. however, taking a close look at our two games I will say we were lucky with the two wins recorded so far. why am I saying this ? a team that can not score goals despite having a good control of the game is susceptible to early elimination due to human error. we have seen teams that don’t play as good as this team yet they have score more goals with ease.

    the coach should work on shooting . we likely going to face USA or Neitherland, either of these teams can beat us . we were lucky Korea didn’t take the lead with those two shots that hit the bar . personally I think we will be lucky to get to the semi final, I won’t be carried away with our ball possession ratings.
