Falconets Maintain Nigerian Dominance Over South Africa, Pound Them In Rabat
The Nigeria U20 women's team started off their campaign in the
African Games football tournament with a 3-0 victory over South Africa
in Rabat on Saturday.
The South Africans were aiming to avenge their 8-0 aggregate defeat in the 2018 U20 Women's World Cup qualifiers at the expense of West African giants but stood no chance in a game they were totally dominated.
The Falconets meanwhile aimed to retaliate after the Super Falcons' 1-0 shock opening 2018 African Women's Cup of Nations defeat to Banyana Banyana in Ghana.
First-half goals from Gift Monday and Zainah Olapade alongside second-half strike from substitute Cynthia Aku gave Christopher Danjuma's ladies a winning start at the Stade des Chenes
