Nigeria’s U-20 female team, the Falconets, on Saturday in Benin City qualified for the 2018 FIFA Women's World Cup in France after a six-goal victory over Basetsana, their South African counterpart.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  reports that the Falconets, had won 2-0 in the first leg a fortnight ago in South Africa.

The return leg played at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City saw the Nigerian team scoring five goals in the first half of the game.

The Besetsana were hardly a match for their Nigerian opponent who clearly dominated proceedings right from the blast of the whistle.

The Nigerian goalkeeper was virtually on holiday as he only had a feel of the ball twice all through the first half.

A brace each by Monday Gift (5th and 39th minute), Ajibade Rasheedat (21st and 32nd minute) and Imo Anam (26th and 73rd minute) ensured Falconets’ comfortable win.

The South Africans became more aggressive and even came close to scoring in the early minutes of the second half but were denied the opportunity by the Nigerian keeper, Annadozie Chiamaka.

Nigeria’s Monday Gift got a red card and also sustained an injury at the same time following a goal-mouth scramble in South Africa’s vital area.

The Falconets had defeated the Tanzanian and Moroccan teams enroute to qualifying for the World Cup.

NAN reports that the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, the ninth edition, will hold between August 5 and August 24 in France. (NAN)
