AWCON 2018: Super Falcons Crush Zambia
The Super Falcons of Nigeria on Tuesday returned to winning ways at the ongoing Women’s Africa Cup of Nations as they secured a massive 4-0 win over the Shepolopolo of Zambia in their second group game of the tournament.
Having started out on a disappointing note with a 1-0 loss to South Africa last Sunday, the Super Falcons had promised that they would make amends in Tuesday’s make-or-mar clash, and that they did in style; recording a big win over Zambia.
Desire Oparanozie got the curtain raiser in the 42nd minute off an assist from Francesca Ordega.
Having only scored a solitary goal in the first 45 minutes, the Super Falcons upped the ante in the second half and it paid off with three additional goals rolling in.
In the 69th Ordega who provided the assist for the first scored this time by herself before substitute, Rasheedat Ajibade popped up with Nigeria’s third goal of the game.
While the three points looked already assured, Amarachi Okonkwo in stoppage time provided the icing on the cake; scoring Nigeria’s fourth and last goal of the match.
The Super Falcons will need a similar performance, if not better in their final group game against Equatorial Guinea to be assured of their place in the Semi final.
The Guineans whoa also lost their first game of AWCON 2018 are taking on South Africa in the second group B game later on Tuesday night.
Only the top two teams from Group A and B will move into the semifinal while only the overall top three teams will get the tickets to represent Africa at next year’s World Cup in France.
