The Nigeria Super Falcons have demolished the Niger Republic women’s football team 15-0 in an encounter at the ongoing West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Cup tournament in Ivory Coast.
This is a new record for the national women’s football.
The sub-regional women football tournament is ongoing in Abidjan with eight West African teams in attendance.
The Super Falcons had thrashed Burkina Faso’s girls 5-1 at the Parc des Sports in Treichville on Thursday, but they were more ruthless on Saturday against the Nigeriens who are indeed the standout whipping team of Group B.
In a report by premium Times, the goals feast for the Super Falcons started in the ninth minute, and two minutes later the nine-African champions had doubled their lead.
Two more goals were added for the Super Falcons before the half-hour mark, and by the end of the first half, the Nigerian Ladies were 9-0 up.
The Super Falcons did not slow down in the second half as they added six more goals to end the tie with an amazing 15-0 score line.
The Nigeriens had lost their opening group game to Mali 10-0, meaning that they have shipped in 25 goals in just two games.
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.
