Falcons Qualify for Women’s Africa Cup of Nations

Star striker Desire Oparanozie and African footballer of the year Asisat Oshoala allowed champions Nigeria to qualify for the 11th Women Africa Cup of Nations on a 7-0 aggregate win.

Oparanozie started by blasting past goalkeeper Aminata Gaye from the spot in the second minute after Francisca Ordega was upended in the box by Nenneh Jallow.

Former Under-17 team star Amarachi Okoronkwo, who scored the only goal of the first leg in Bakau on Wednesday with a long-range strike, tried to recreate same on the half –hour, but her effort saw the ball kiss the upright and bounce to safety.

Super Falcons have now joined Equatorial Guinea, Mali, Zambia, South Africa, Algeria and Cameroon at the finals slated for later this year.
