Falconets confident as Leopardess approach



Falconets striker, Francisca Ordega has said the DR Congo's Leopardess will not stop them from the 2012 Fifa Under20 Women's World Cup in Japan.

Both countries emerged as opponents for the final fixture after wins over their round two foes.

The Nigerians defeated the Young Mighty Warriors of Zimbabwe 6-0 on aggregate while the Central Africans whipped hapless Malians 6-3.

Ordega told SuperSport.com that the nation's campaigners have quality players that will put a stop to the DR Congo's World Cup ambition.

"We know very little about the Leopardess of DR Congo, their style and players. They must be a strong and high scoring side, but we're not scared of them.

"Since we returned from Harare, Zimbabwe we've been training for the final fixture opponents.

"I think we're ready for them, we've good players to defeat them. And we'll win massive at home to make the reverse fixture in Kinshasa a bit easy," she said.

The Rivers Angels' forward who shot blank against the Zimbabweans in Harare promised to revive her goal-scoring feat against the Leopardess.

"I won't want to peg the goals, but be rest assured that the goals which didn't come in Harare will rain against the Leopardess.

"We want to win convincingly so goals must come," she said.

The first leg fixture in Nigeria comes up in the second week of May while the second leg is in a fortnight in Kinshasa.

The winner will qualify automatically for the World Cup in Japan between August 18 and September 9.
