France 2018: Falconets Goalkeeper Braces Up For Tough Clash Against China
Goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie did so well for the Falconets on Thursday as they beat Haiti by a lone goal.
That victory got the team back on track at the ongoing FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in France.
The Rivers Angels shot stopper admits that she and her teammates will need to get it right against China in their final group game on Monday.
Voted as ‘Player of the Match’ against Haiti, that should give Nnadozie plenty of confidence ahead of Nigeria's decisive match against China.
Given Nigeria's superior goal difference a draw would be enough for them to reach the next round, but Nnadozie confesses that she is aware it will be no easy task.
"We have the same amount of points as China, so it's going to be a tough match," she said.
"It's the final match in the group stage, so we have to try our best and give everything we have. This is the final fight."
It will be intriguing to see just who Nnadozie might stop this time.
Already, the Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung has promised the Falconets $10,000 of his 'personal money' if they win their next game against China on Monday.
