The result moves the Falconets to second spot in Group D, on a superior goals from third place China.

“It is going to be a very busy encounter from the first blast of the whistle,” Danjuma told thenff.com.

“We are not expecting an easy match. I said from the beginning that if we must reach the final, we have to play and overcome very tough teams.

“We have no illusions. The Chinese squad is a very ambitious one, and we have to be at our best to overcome them. We will go out there and give our very best.”
