Super Falcons bounce back with crucial victory
The Nigeria national women’s team, the Super Falcons, have gotten their campaign at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations back on track following their crucial 2-0 win over the Mares of Botswana, Thursday night in Rabat. A goal in the first half by Ifeoma Onumonu and another by substitute Christy Ucheibe a few minutes into the second half saw Nigeria cruise to victory at the Moulay Hassan FUS, Rabat Stadium.
After Monday’s lackadaisical performance against the Bayana Bayana of South Africa, the Falcons needed the three points in Thursday’s Group C clash. Randy Waldrum’s side put up an improved display which was enough to see them get the result that keeps them both in contention for a World Cup ticket as well as a record-extending 10th title.
