Costa Rica 2022: Falconets seek to sustain perfect record against Canada

 Nigeria is one of only six teams to have played in every edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup finals since the championship was launched in China in 1991.
Nigeria is one of only six teams to have played in every edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup finals since the championship was launched in China in 1991.

High-riding Nigeria will look to make it a perfect group phase campaign at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup when they clash with Canada at the Estadio Alajuela Morera Soto in what would be the early hours of Thursday (3am) in Nigeria.

Riding high as the top team of Group C following 1-0 wins over France and Canada has thrown the Falconets into the harshest spot of the klieg lights, but Head Coach, Chris Danjuma Musa says his girls have their feet firmly on the ground as they confront the North Americans for another three points.

“We would like to make it three wins out of three to maintain a great mental state –the winning mentality. If we are used to winning, it would be difficult for any team to bring us down.

“It would be a mistake to reduce our pace and zest simply because we have qualified for the quarter-finals. The best way to do it, always, is to consider each match as a task that must be accomplished and not slow down. We will still meet tougher teams ahead and the winning mentality is what will sustain us.”

With Nigeria already qualified, the battle for the second spot from Group C is a straight one between Korean Republic and France, who play simultaneously (3am Nigeria time) at the Estadio Nacional in San Jose. Both teams have three points each.
