Super Falcons Thrash Gambia 6-0 To Qualify For AWCON

Nigeria’s female national team qualified to 2018 Africa’s Women Cup Of Nation in a beautiful fashion by thrashing Gambia 6-0.

The Super Falcons, eight-time champion, would be looking to repeat their 2016 victorious display in the competition that will take place in Ghana later in the year.

Nigeria won the first leg of the tie in Gambia by a goal to nil and did well at home to book their ticket to AWCON.

Cheered by supporters at the Agege Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria took an early lead through a penalty, which Desire Oparanozie calmly slot into the back of the net.

Oshoala scored the second goal of the game few minutes before halftime to give Super Falcons a cushion at the break.

Oparanozie grabbed her second goal of the day by a  simple tap in after a sublime pass from Asisat Oshoala in the 49th minute to make it three for Nigeria.

Okobi puts Oparanozie through to goal in the 65th minute. Oparanozie found the back of the net as she got her hattrick for the night and fourth for Nigeria.

It was not over for Nigeria as Oshoala got her second goal of the game in the 74th minute. The star player breezed past the Gambian defence to slot home the fifth for Nigeria.

 

Oparanozie capped a wonderful display as she fired home her fourth of the game and sixth goal for the Super Falcons.
