Nigeria’s Super Falcons on Saturday, May 11, recorded their biggest victory ever in a match when they defeated Niger Republic 15-0 in a WAFU tournament going on in Ivory Coast.
Eight teams are currently participating in the West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Cup tournament in Abidjan.
The remarkable win over Niger Republic has now sent the Super Falcons to the semifinal of the WAFU championship with a game remaining to play in Group B.
The high score win on Saturday has earned the Falcons an early ticket into the semifinals, taking their confidence to the maximum level. It has also set them in a good mood for the concluding stages of the championship.
After Saturday’s clash with the Nigeriens, the FIFA World Cup-bound Falcons will tackle high–scoring Mali on Tuesday evening.
According to the team’s programme, the Falcons will fly out of Nigeria to Austria on May 21, where they will spend two weeks at the renowned Avita Resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf perfecting strategies for the 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup finals. They will arrive in France on June 4.
