Halimatu Ayinde scored the winning goal in the 47th minute for the African champions, who totally outplayed their opponents and wasted a number of great chances.

Asisat Oshoala, Uchenna Kanu and Francisca Ordega all came close to scoring but their efforts were saved.

The Falcons are top of their group, and will face Equatorial Guinea in their next game in the competition next Tuesday in the city of Antalya.

Equatorial Guinea were thrashed 5-0 by Uzbekistan in their first game and were beaten 2-0 by CSKA on Saturday.
