PHOTOS: Falconets Beat Haiti To Revive U20 Women’s W/Cup Hope
Nigeria’s Falconets managed a slim 1-0 victory over hard-fighting Haiti to revive any hope of advancing from the group stage of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.
Rashidat Ajibade’s 36th minute penalty goal was all Nigeria needed to bounce back to winning ways after suffering a 1-0 defeat in their opening fixture against Germany.
In front of a few fans at the Stade de Marville, Saint-Malo, Nigeria knew only a victory is good enough to see them out of the group now dominated by Germany, who beat China 2-0 in an early kickoff.
The coach Christopher Musa side went all out and held on to their first half lead to claim maximum point.
Nigeria will now face China, who also has three points, in the final game of Group D on Monday.
