WAFU B U20: Falconets Thrash Opponent 10-0 In Friendly

Nigeria U20 women side continued their fine preparation for the maiden WAFU-B U20 Women’s Cup after they thrashed Paul E Queens 10-0 in Sunday’s international friendly played in Abuja.

The Falconets went into their third warm-up encounter on the back of two victories in a row, beginning with a 5-1 victory over Abuja U15 boys a week ago before a 3-0 win over Josiah Academy last Tuesday.

With the final squad named, Christopher Danjuma’s side made a bright start as they stormed into a 6-0 first half lead thanks to a brace from Shukurat Oladipo and Esther Onyenezide plus a strike from Taiwo Ajakaye and Aminat Bello.

In the second half, the Abuja-based opponents held out for some minutes before the Falconets eventually increased their tally thanks to Goodness Osigwe setting up Onyenezide for her treble in the 52nd minute.

15 minutes later, Onyenezide teed up Flourish Sabastine to make it seven eighth goal of the match before Chioma Olise played the former through to notch her second of the match in the 72nd minute.

Two minutes later, Onyenezide also raced through to assist Osigwe get on the scoresheet to wrap up a 10-goal win.

In three matches, the Falconets have accrued 18 goals and conceded just one as they continue their build up on Tuesday with another showdown with Gallant Queens in Abuja.

The Falconets are in Group B against Niger Republic, Burkina Faso and Togo for the Ghana 2023 regional showpiece and they will aim to replicate their gold-medal winning form at the 2019 African Games in Morocco.
