Falconets Head Coach Chris Danjuma has expressed his confidence in the ladies’ progression after an unimpressive win over the Haitians on Thursday.
The Falconets needed a win to keep their hopes of a qualification to the knockout stage alive, and that they did when stand-in captain Rasheedat Ajibade netted from the penalty spot after Anam Imo was fouled in the box in the 36th minute of the encounter.
Just before the end of the first period, Ajibade sent a brilliant pass to Anam Imo but the latter could not connect for a tap-in, and the half ended with the Falconets still one goal ahead.
The Haitians improved at the beginning of the second half but were contained by the Falconets who were hell-bent on getting all three points at stake.
Danjuma has backed his girls chances of standing tall and claiming the needed result to progress to the knock out round of the ongoing FIFA U20 women world cup in France.
The veteran tactician told brila.net that he remain confident that the Falconet wouldn’t allow the qualification slip off their grasp.
The Falconets will take on their Chinese counterparts in their last group game.
