Barcelona Feminine football club of Spain star Asisat Oshoala was the heroine for Nigerian Super Falcons on Tuesday morning, as she scored four goals in Nigeria's 9-0 victory over Equatorial Guinea in Turkey.
The Nigerian female national team have been doing pretty well since the beginning of the tournament in Turkey, as they've defeated CSKA Moscow female Football Club, and Uzbekistan in their previous matches, and they continued their excellent performance on Tuesday morning, as they won convincingly against their African opponent, at EMR Sports Complexion Turkey.
Goals from Barcelona Feminine star Asisat Oshoala (4), and a goal each from Sevilla's Toni Payne, Gift Monday, Uchenna Kanu, Charity Adule, and Ogbona were enough to give the Nigeria Super Falcons the deserved victory.
Ogbona opened scoring for Nigeria in the 8th minutes, while Asisat Oshoala doubled the lead in the 11th minutes via a Penalty kick. Asisat made it 3-0 in the 13th minutes, and she completed her hat-trick in the 26th minutes to make it 4-0, and Adule made it 5-0 in the 38th minutes as the first half ended 5-0 in favour of Nigeria Super Falcons.
Nigeria made it 6-0 in the 47th minutes through Sevilla's Toni Payne. Uchenna Kanu made it 7-0, while Gift Monday made it 8-0, before Asisat Oshoala scored the last goal of the game in the 69th minutes to end the match 9-0.
The victory over Equatorial Guinea now means Nigeria Super Falcons have won their three matches, without conceding a goal.
