Super Falcons goalkeeper, Precious Dede, has reassured Nigerians that they would see improved defending from the team in Friday’s second group match against Australia.
The Falcons defence gave away two cheap goals in the game against Sweden, failing to deal decisively with most of the set pieces against the team, africanFootball.com reports.
Dede, 35, who is one of the very experienced players in the Super Falcons, was caught napping on several occasions in the game against Sweden.
“We know the first half didn’t go well and we made some mistakes. But we were determined to correct those mistakes and that is why we came out fighting in the second half,” she told africanFootball.com in Canada.
“I can assure you that in our next game you would not see those mistakes again because we would go and watch the tapes and correct them.”
The United States leads the group after defeating Australia 3-1 in both nations’ first game.
