Super Falcons into WAFU Cup semis after thrashing Niger Republic 15-0

Following a big victory over Niger Republic on Saturday, Nigeria’s Super Falcons qualified for the semifinal of the ongoing WAFU Women’s Cup.

The Falcons thrashed their neighbors 15-0 at the Parc Des Sports Stadium in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.

Niger, who were thrashed 12-0 by Mali in their first game at the Wafu Zone B competition, trailed in the 9th minute when Cecilia Nku opened scoring.

Uchenna Kanu added the second two minutes later to put Nigeria in charge, before seven more goals were scored in the first half.

The Thomas Dennerby ladies added six more goals after the break to complete the whitewash.

Having defeated Burkina Faso 5-1 in their opening game last Thursday, the win on Saturday sees them through to the last four.

They will face their biggest test in the competition when they take on Mali in their final group game on Monday.

Victory against the Malians would see them consolidate on top spot in Group B.

A top place finish in the group will see them face the second placed team in Group B in the semis.
