Falconets take step towards U20 World Cup

13 July 2015, 16:10

Monrovia - The Nigerian U20 Women National Team, The Falconets, on Sunday began their campaign for a spot at the 2016 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals on a blistering note, walloping their Liberian counterparts 7-1 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia.

Yetunde Adeboyejo started the goal rush, scoring the first of her three goals in the 15th minute, before 2014 U-17 Women’s World Cup strike partner Chinwendu Ihezuo added a second on the half hour mark.

Adeboyejo netted her second and Nigeria’s third nine minutes before half time, but the Liberians got a goal four minutes later to end the first half 3-1.

Adeboyejo made sure of her hat -trick early in the second half, before Juliet Sunday netted the fifth goal in the 70th minute.

There was no road for the Liberians into the game again, and Amarachi Ojinma scored two quick-fire goals late in the game to make it 7-1 to the Falconets.

The second half leg comes up in Nigeria in two weeks’ time.

The 2016 FIFA U20 World Cup holds in Papua New Guinea.
