We won’t underrate S/Africa – Danjuma

Falconets ‘ll fall – S.African star

Falconets coach, Chris Danjuma has said his girls will not underrate their South African counterparts in today’s crucial U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifier in Benin.
“The Basetsana are a good side and we have to be careful against them. We will not rest on our oars. Our approach would be to win and make sure of a ticket to the World Cup finals,” Danjuma said.

But South Africa’s  U-20 women’s team winger, Lelona Daweti, believes the Basetsana can beat Nigeria’s Falconets to the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup ticket despite losing  the first leg final round of their African  qual?ifying to the Nigerian girls?.

In the first leg decided a fortnight ago in Polokwane, the Falconets won 2-0, thanks to goals from Rasheedat Ajibade and Anam Imo.

A win or a draw in the second leg at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium Benin City today will see the Falconets pick one of Africa’s two tickets for  2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in France.

“We have to remain positive and united as a team,” Daweti told South Africa Football Association (SAFA) official website.

“We have been in a similar situation against Burundi and came out top. Even though this is a much stronger opponent, we have a talented group of players who play with heart and dedication. Nothing is impossible and we need to go in there with that mindset.”
