FIFA U20 Women’s W/Cup:  Falconets ready for South Africa – Danjuma

Super Falconets Chief Coach, Christopher Danjuma has expressed his confidence in the level of preparedness of his players ahead of the qualifier match against S/Africa.

Speaking in a chat with Brila FM, the Falconets boss Danjuma made known of his optimism ahead of the cracker claiming his girls know they have to qualify.

As his players get for next month’s final Fifa U20 Women’s World Cup qualifying clash against South Africa, coach of the team, Christopher Danjuma has revealed that his girls are prepared objectively, as the girls know they have to qualify.

The Falconets defeated Tanzania 9-0 and Morocco 6-2 respectively to reach the last stage, and for coach Danjuma, he remains optimistic his players will do well when they tackle the South Africans.

The gaffer further explained that they would ensure that they improve on the lapses witnessed in the previous rounds in order to get better.

Meanwhile, FIFA has issued a punishment to Nigeria for fielding an ineligible player in their final 2018 World Cup qualifier away to Algeria last month.

The match in Constantine on November 10 ended in a 1-1 draw, but that has been overturned and a 3-0 win has been awarded to the North Africans.

The decision does not affect the Super Eagles’ qualification for Russia 2018, as they had already secured their passage to the tournament before the match against Algeria.

FIFA have overturned the result and sanctioned the Nigerian Football Federation US$6,000 after they fielded Abdullahi Shehu in the match, even though he had picked up two yellow cards in previous matches and was therefore suspended.

“The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has been sanctioned for fielding an ineligible player in the match between Algeria and Nigeria on 10 November 2017,” FIFA said in a statement published on its official website.

“The match is declared to be forfeited and awarded 3-0 in favour of Algeria, with the NFF also receiving a fine of US$6,000.

“The sanction relates to the player Abdullahi Shehu failing to serve the automatic one-match suspension imposed on him as a result of receiving a caution in two separate matches of the same competition.

“This sanction bears no impact on the final result of the preliminary competition for the FIFA World Cup since Nigeria had already qualified (and Algeria eliminated) before the match took place.”
