–Falconets coach eyes win against N/Korea
Head coach of the Falconets Peter Dedevbo has stated his intention of beating North Korea in tomorrow’s semi-final at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.
The Falconets thrashed New Zealand 4-1 in Sunday’s quarter-final with Asisat Oshoala and Uchechi Sunday both netting a brace while North Korea eliminated USA 3-1 on penalties after regulation time had ended 1-1.
Speaking ahead of the clash, Dedevbo expressed his team’s readiness to face North Korea who won the 2006 edition in Russia.
“I’m very satisfied with what we achieved, and now I’m ready for North Korea. I know their team, I know their coach, and I want to beat them at all costs.”
Reacting to the victory against New Zealand, he said he always had the believe his team will be victorious based on the quality he parades.
“I was not scared before the game because I know that, with the quality we have, this team would qualify. Scoring early changes the character of the team, it’s very good for the confidence, and then you play better and in a more relaxed way.”
A win for either team will see them book a place in Sunday’s final against Germany or France.
