The head coach of Nigeria U18 Girls handball team, Agboola Shittu on Tuesday night revealed that his players should have scored more goals in the match against Liberia at the ongoing IHF U18 Girls’ Challenge Trophy (Zone 3) in Ghana.
Shittu reacted after Nigeria whitewashed Liberia by 61 to 16 goals in their first match of the IHF U18 Girls’ Challenge Trophy (Zone 3).
The ex international told www.aclsports.com that he was not impressed with the performances of the players because he believes they could do far more better with the calibre of players Nigeria is parading at the Championship.
Shittu said, “I am glad the girls were able to give Nigeria her first win in the championship.

“I am not yet impressed with the performance, especially our ball handling and goal loss; I think we can still do better.
“The girls did well but there are lots of room for improvement”, he told www.aclsports.com
He assured that the fans will notice an improvement in their subsequent matches.
The 2003 COJA bronze medallist said, “We are taking each game as they come, and we have been prudent with our expectations.
“The players will be going out in the next matches to improve on today’s performance”.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Babatunde Taiwo was voted Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the match for her superlative performance which was the focal point of Nigeria’s victory.
