Super Falcons glad to beat Lionesses

30 April 2014, 11:10Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Nigeria Super Falcons on Tuesday defeated their Cameroonian counterpart 1-0 in an international friendly match played inside the FIFA goal project, National Stadium package B in Abuja.

Asisat Oshoala got the only goal for Falcons in the 85th minute to put smiles on the faces of supporters who filled the FIFA goal project 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, coach Edwin Okon said he is happy his girls created scoring opportunities but added that he and his assistants will work on the finishing 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 instruction 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.
