Nigeria has game plan for Netherlands Test – Musa


Head Coach Christopher Musa says Nigeria expects to face a tough Netherlands side in the quarter-final of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.

Nigeria finished top of their group with maximum points and face a Dutch team that lost once before picking themselves up against USA and Ghana to grab a runners up spot.
The Dutch girls scored 7 goals and conceded only 2 in the group stages and they’ll be a handful, but Musa insists there’s always a game plan.
“The Dutch are a super-strong squad to have survived that group where the Americans were sent packing,” the Nigerian Coach said.
“In any event, any team in the quarter-finals must be a super-strong squad. We will not under-rate them, just as we did not under-rate any of France, Korea Republic and Canada.”
“As I said at the beginning of the tournament, we are taking it one match at a time. Our overall plan for each of the games in the group phase worked well. And I believe that our overall plan for the match against The Netherlands will work as well.”
Nigeria vs Netherlands, which will be the last quarter-final game of the tournament, will hold Sunday at the Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto.
