The Super Falconets record their first victory in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. Indeed, Nigeria has won this Thursday afternoon against the surprising team of Haiti (1-0).
Nigeria remains alive in this world cup. The success of this Thursday, August 9, 2018 allows the team of Christopher Musa to remain in contention in the competition.
After the premature elimination of Ghana, the other African representative in this tournament, the Nigerians were keen to revive. And to do so, the first step was a victory against the beautiful team of Haiti, which is participating for the first time in a final phase of U20 Women’s World Cup. Even though the party has not been a long quiet river for the Super Falconets, they succeed at the end.
It was at the 36th minute that the opening was created. Nigeria got a penalty converted by Rasheedat Ajibade. The player did not tremble in front of the Theus’ goals and allows the Nigerian selection to evolve in the lead.
Thanks to goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie (selected as best player of the match), Nigerian cages remained untouched. The next meeting of Super Falconets will follow this Monday, August 13 against China.
Ghana, already eliminated, will be struggling with New Zealand this Sunday, August 12, 2018.
