Super Falcons Create History: Nigeria Massacre Niger 15 – 0
The win was the biggest ever win recorded by the senior national teams
Nigeria’s Super Falcons rained goals on Niger in the ongoing WAFU Women’s Cup tourney in Abidjan, putting fifteen unreplied goals past their unlucky opponents on Saturday evening.
A day after thrashing Burkina Faso 5-1 in their first game of the tournament, Thomas Dennerby’s ladies returned to the Parc Des Sports Stadium today to subject Niger to an annihilation in the second group B game.
With most of the team’s stars missing out of the competition due to club commitments, the Swedish handed captaincy responsibilities to Bayelsa Queens Osarenoma Igbinovia, with the team dominated by home-based players.
Uchenna Kanu, Alice Ogebe and Mary Ologbosere were some of the players who got on the scoresheet in the huge win.
For the records, the win was the biggest ever win recorded by the senior national teams, surpassing the previous 10-1 victory by the Super Eagles against Dahomey in 1959.
Nigeria, thus booked a place in the semifinals of the continental competition following their latest result and will round off group action against Mali.
