Super Falcons beat South Korea 2-0

Asisat Oshoala sealed the victory for the Super Falcons of Nigeria in their 2-0 win over South Korea on Wednesday at the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

The Super Falcons were mauled 3-0 in their opening game at the World Cup against Norway and they were aware that nothing short of victory in Wednesday’s game would help their chances of still staying on at the World Cup in France.

After failing to convert earlier chances, the Super Falcons shot into the lead in the 29th minute when Korea’s D.Y Kim turned the ball into her own net.


The Koreans who were also pummeled 4-0 in their opening game against France tried hard to pull level but they were denied.

In the second half, Oshoala ensured that Nigeria secured maximum points when she expertly scored the second goal for the Falcons in the 75th minute.
