Head coach of Nigeria U21 women’s team, Rakiya Mohammed expressed her happiness over the victory of the team.

“I am the happiest coach on earth today because this is the first time Nigeria is picking a trophy in the underaged championship so I feel so happy. The Ghanaians came all out to play the Nigerian team but the girls showed them that Khaki no be leather.

That’s how we played and defeated them and we’ve lifted the trophy and we are taking it back to Nigeria and also we’ve qualified for the world championship in Thailand”, an elated Mohammed expressed.

“I told them that Ghana played us first, and the second time that we are meeting, it’s going to be difficult. They’re going to push, so we should push more than the first time we played them, and that is exactly what the girls did.

Both in defence, in attack, in blocks, and service, Nigerian girls were wonderful” remarked Nigeria’s U21 volleyball coach.
