Nigeria 4-0 Zambia: Super Falcons Revive Their Campaign With Comfortable Win
The super falcons 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 opening match to South Africa. Before the break, Nigeria brought their campaign back on track with the opening goal. A good pass from Ayinde released Ordega on the left wing and the speedster moved the ball before squaring it for Opara-nozie to connect home much to the relief of the Nigeria bench.
Three minutes after the break Opara-nozie nearly scored the second goal but was denied by right back Margeret Belemu who stopped a goal bound shot.
The 2016 top scorer did everything right by rounded up Nali and firing on target. But Odega smashed home from a rebound by curling past goalkeeper Nali after Oparanozie’s connection to Oshoala’s cross from the left came off the goal post in the 68th 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
