#2022 U-20 WWC: Onyenezide Named Woman Of The Match In Falconets’ Win Vs Canada

Esther Onyenezide was named Woman of the Match following Nigeria’s 3-1 win against Canada at the Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto, Alajueda on Thursday morning.

Onyenezide bagged a brace for the Falconets in the thrilling encounter.

Substitute Chioma Olise netted the third goal deep into stoppage time.

Onyenezide has now scored three goals in three appearances for Nigeria in the competition.


It would be recalled that she was also named Woman of the Match in Nigeria’s previous game against Korea Republic.

The Falconets ended the group stage with nine points from three games.

Chris Danjuma’s side will face Netherlands in quarter-finals on Sunday.

  • Do we have a Ghanaian correspent working for Complete Sports Nigeria? Whenever Ghana lines up some of these useless friendly matches or it there is an insignificant news about thier world cup preparations, then it is covered on this platform.

    But every time they fail, which is actually every time – apart from their Away goals assisted, Eguavoen’s incompetence aided world cup qualification – this platform goes quiet.

    Yesterday, Ghana predictably completed a hattrick of failure in losing to the Netherlands 4 goals to 1 in the ongoing women’s world cup in Under-20 level.

    This humiliation completes an ignominious trilogy of 0 points across 3 games with a minus 8 goals difference! Contrast that with Nigeria’s exquisite record of 6 points and plus 4 goals record across 3 games.

    Little wonder Ghanaian fans detest Nigeria to their finger tips. But do we care? Do we give a damn? I don’t think so.

    We were, we are and we will always be better than Ghana. Just look at this 2022 at a glance.

    1) Under-20 Wafu:
    Nigeria 1: Ghana 0

    2) Under-17 Wafu:
    Nigeria 1: Ghana 0

    3) Wafcon Qualifiers:
    Nigeria 1: Ghana 0

    4) Commonwealth Games:
    Nigeria 1: Ghana 0

    5) Under-17 Women’s world cup participation:
    Nigeria 1: Ghana 0

    6) Under-20 Women’s world cup knockout stage achievement:
    Nigeria 1: Ghana 0

    But all of these do not matter to our Ghanaian colleagues just because away goals rule gifted them Qatar World Cup participation ahead of Nigeria. Apart from that fluke, Nigeria has quite literally wiped the floor with Ghana in other spheres of footballing endeavour.

    Ghana should grant Eguavoen the key to their capital city!

    2023 is round the corner and guess what, there are no less than 6 tasty and tantalising international football tournaments across gender to look forward to: Chan Afcon, U-17 Afcon, U-20 Afcon, U-17 world cup, U-20 world cup, and the most epic women’s sporting tournament in the women’s world cup.

    Already, Ghana will be a no-show in 5 of these having been directly or less indirectly knocked out by Nigeria 🙂

    I am just waiting for Salisu Yusuf to do the business later this month so that Nigeria would have effectively switched off the lights on all international football to Ghana next year.

    That Chan qualifiers is like a world cup final for me. I don’t care how long Ghana have been preparing vis a vis Nigeria, SALISU YUSUF CANNOT AFFORD TO FAIL!

    Well done Falconets! Whatever happens from here, at least you qualified for the knockout phase where your West African counterparts failed woefully, as expected!

      Come on man.  Can’t we just celebrate our own achievements without bringing Ghana up?  I mean how Ghana performs has no bearing on how we are performing so why dilute our accomplishment by bringing them up? 

      They’re going to the WC, we’re not and the more we keep trying to poo poo that fact, the more it plays into their hands.  We took the L in the one that matters so we just have to wear it and meanwhile celebrate the other achievements we are accomplishing.  For me, no amount of U-17, U-20, mens and womens and wafcon success can make up for the singular failure of not being in Qatar.  We look small when we keep bringing them up

    • I do respect your views Lord AMO but whether you choose to accept it or not, a rivalry is a rivalry. Mind you, my reference to Ghana within this context has a ring of relevance as they actually played and lost in the early hours of this morning.

      For me, I am willing to accept successes in other genders and age group competitions as consolation for not qualifying for the Qatar world cup. It is not Nigeria’s birthright to be in each and every single world cup when only 5 countries will qualify from a continent of 54 countries.

      I have no compunction in stating our superiority over Ghana in international football across the totality of age groups and gender.

      It is up to Super Eagles players to qualify for the World Cup. If they don’t, it is their career prospects that will suffer, not mine. So I will not cry over spilt milk for players who could not easily dispatch the worst Ghana team in living memory.

    Yes, they kept talking trash when a dubious away goal rule sent them to the World Cup. Self made shit and yawyaw, where are you guys? Your national teams are now used to defeat, not just football alone, every sports, while team Nigeria keeps soaring high. 3 matches, 3 losses. 0 over 3.too poor.

    It’s her courage for me. She plays confidently.

    The team generally is blessed. I wish them well as the lift the trophy.
