Nigeria Vs Zambia 4-0: Super Falcons Revive Their Campaign With Comfortable Win

Defending champions Nigeria revived their 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations campaign with an easy 4-0 win over Zambia on Wednesday in Cape Coast.

The Super Falcons lost their opening match to South Africa and were facing an ignominious elimination from the tournament. And so they tackled the match by the scruff of the neck.

Before the short break, Nigeria brought their campaign back on track with the opening goal. A wall pass from Ayinde released Ordega on the left wing and the speedster raced with the ball before squaring it for Oparanozie to connect home much to the relief of the Nigeria bench.

Three minutes after the short break Opara-nozie nearly fetched the second goal but was denied by right back Margret Belemu who stopped a goal bound shot.

The 2016 top scorer did everything right by rounded up Nali and firing on target. But Ordega smashed home from a rebound by curling past goalkeeper Nali after Opara-nozie’s connection to Oshoala’s cross from the left came off the side post in the 69th minute.

With a quarter of an hour left, substitute Rasheedat Ajibade rocketed the ball which came off the underside of the bar for the third goal. But injury time, substitute Grace Okoronkwo long range shot bounced off the turf and slipped under the arms of Nali for the fourth goal
