Super falcons “two” good for Korea.

11 times African champions, Nigeria are back in and running in the FIFA Women’s World Cup after seeing off South Korea 2-0 in a tightly-fought contest.

The Super Falcons, beaten in its opening game by Norway, bounced back courtesy of an own-goal by Korea’s Kim Do-yeun and Asisat Oshoala’s fine second half strike.
Oshoala, who won the Golden Ball and Golden Boot at the under-20 World Cup in 2014, underlined her reputation as one of the most exciting players in the game by sealing her team’s victory by rounding off a fine Nigerian move 15 minutes from time.

Highlights


The three-time African footballer of the year, raced onto the Chidinma Okeke’s  through ball before accelerating away from her marker and rolling the ball past the goalkeeper to spark wild celebrations.

Oshoala’s strike marked a miserable afternoon for the Koreans which had gifted its opponent a 29th minute lead through Kim’s own-goal.

Nigeria will take on France in its final group game on Monday while South Korea takes on Norway
