U-20 World Cup: Falconet defeats Canada 3-1
Super Falconet’s midfielder, Rasheedat Ajibade who was named the Live Your Goals Player of the Match against Canada, has dedicated her award to her teammates and Coach, Peter Dedevbo.
In an interview, she stated; “I am excited and grateful to God for this award. Ajibade began. I am dedicating this award to my teammates for their support and especially to Coach Peter Dedevbo for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to be part of the team.”
However, Ajibade revealed that there is a huge difference between playing at the U-20 World Cup and playing at the U-17 cadre.
“The difference is very clear, the pressure in the U-17 is not as strong as what I am experiencing here. It is more like the higher you go, the hotter it becomes.”
Meanwhile, Nigeria will lock horns with Spain in Group B, while Canada tackles Japan on November 20.
