Flamingos coach not yet satisfy with team composure

Flamingos coach Bala Nikyu is yet to be satisfied with the team performances in the friendly games played so far as they get set for the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan.

The 2016 FIFA U-17 Women World Cup will start from Sept. 30 to Oct. 21 in Jordan and Nigeria is grouped alongside Brazil, England and the 2008 champions Korea DPR at the group stage.

After a goalless draw with Nasarawa Amazons on Friday, Nikyu said there are mistakes he observed and will go back and correct, just as he has been doing since the camp opened.

“We can never be hundred percent sure of what we have, and after the previous friendly match we made some correction, after this match I will still correct some mistakes.

“There were still some mistakes that I am not expected to see but it is good that I am seeing them now so that we can work on them.

“Our players performance is above average, I need to work on their composure on the ball, I want to see them playing with command and confidence.

“I want them to understand the tactical aspect of the game,” he said.

The match played at the astro-turf pitch of the FIFA Goal Project at the package B of the National stadium in Abuja on Friday could not produce any goal.

The two teams displayed brilliant performances in the first half but failed to utilise their scoring chances.

On the resumption of the second half, both teams played very well but could not registered any goal in the game.
