S/Falcons take Lionesses for diner




Nigeria Super Falcons yesterday defeated their Cameroonian counterparts 1 – 0 in an international friendly match played inside FIFA Goal Project, National Stadium Package B, Abuja.

Asisat Oshoala got the only goal for Falcons in the 85th minute to put smiles in the faces of supporters who stormed the pitch to support the Super Falcons.
“I am very happy to score the only goal for my team; the match was very tough but we are happy we got victory at last” an elated Oshoala said.

In a post-match chat, head coach, Edwin Okon, said he was happy his girls created scoring opportunities but added that he and his assistants would work on finishing touches for the girls.
“As you can see, we are in the process of rebuilding a new team and I think the reason behind the struggling to get the victory today was that the girls did not play to the instructions as per converting chances. Our task now is to work on converting our chances.
“There are no matches that are simple you must labour to win matches and I am happy that our labour did not go in vain,” he said.
