Nigeria’s Falcons Lose World Cup Match To Australia

A brace by Kyah Simon was enough to give Australia maximum points as they defeated the Super Falcons of Nigeria 2-0 in a FIFA Women’s World Cup second group match Friday night.

Simon scored both goals amidst a poorly coordinated Falcons’ defence in the 29th and 69th minutes.

The performance of the Nigerian ladies was not good enough to stop the rampaging Aussies.

Asisat Oshoala was a shadow of herself, while players such as Okobi, Oparanozie and the others failed to play as a team.

Nigeria Coach Okon also failed to turn things around for the Falcons as he brought Courtney Dike and Perpetua Nkwocha into the game when the match was almost over.
