Ottawa - The Falconets have qualified for the final of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup after a resounding 6-2 victory over Korea in the semifinal.

Asisat Oshoala scored four goals, with Courtney Dike and Uchechi Sunday adding to the tally.

It was Dike who again scored an early goal with just two minutes of action in Moncton. Oshoala then doubled the score for Nigeria in the 24th minute before Korea’s Un Sim managed to cancel one goal in the 36th minute to end the first half at 2-1.
