After connecting with a pass on the left, Asisat Oshoala sent a lovely cross into the box which Monday met with a header which lopped over the Malian keeper.

And in the 91st minute the Falcons doubled their lead through Monday who ran on to a flicked header before lobbing the keeper.

The Falcons will be back in action on Tuesday September 21 when they take on South Africa at the same venue.

Meanwhile, the second game of the tournament will see Cameroon battle Morocco at the Onikan stadium on Thursday.

    My thoughts on this tournament.

    As a country, the president should be a good father to his citizens.

    He should be more concerned about the citizens and well being of the citizens should be his number one priority but here we are, the president and his wife are less concerned about their citizens.

    There’s nothing wrong in hosting a tournament for our first lady if everything is going on well in Nigeria.

    They spent a lot of money to host this Aisha Buhari Cup while the citizens are suffering. No job, insecurity and infrastructure. Hmmm. There’s God oooo.

    However, the positive side of this tournament is that, coach Waldrum is using the opportunity to build Super Falcons.

    He doesn’t relying on any player. He used the no1 goalie during the US invitational games and now using the second goalie.

    This is how you build a team in less than a year because Nigeria have players every where.

    He can count on his first choice and the second choice now. He is creating competitions among the players. It is hard to predict his first eleven now.

    That is what is lacking in the Super Eagles.

    If anything happens to the first choice, the second choice is on standby likewise the 3rd one. Bravo .

    The other things I noticed, Waldrum have pattern of play and he do not have room for excuses.

    Coach Waldrum is trying to have a strong team before the Ghana match.

    Before the next Afcon and world cup, with what am seeing, it will be harder for any team to beat the Super Falcons team in Africa and outside Africa.

    I hate nobody. If he coach Waldrum is not doing his job well, I will say it but for now, he is doing very well. Am impressed.

    Lastly, to our first Lady Mrs. Aisha Buhari, you are a mother and you should behave like a mother.

    The money spent on this tournament can build a factory any where in Nigeria.

    The level of poverty is higher. People are hungry.

    You and your husband should do something to the problems because, it is getting out of hand. People in diaspora are scared to come home because of the level of insecurity in Nigeria.

    People in Nigeria can’t sleep with their two eyes.

    This is a great opportunity for me to send the message over.

    Even, the rich people/politicians can’t do without their security guards while the poor people are getting killed everyday and you are in Lagos hosting a football tournament. That is wickedness.

    For me, hosting a tournament in this kind of situation is selfishness.

    Fellow Nigerians, rise up and fight for your country. If you say you don’t care, think about your people back home in Nigeria.

    I am a Lagosian who loves to watch Nigerian football ⚽️ but not in this situation we found ourselves. Let’s tell our oppressors enough is enough. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    You really never cease to amaze me, are you sure you watched the Super Falcons Vs Mali game at all? There was nothing to really write home about the falcon’s play, they couldn’t put three passes together without a school-girl error. There was a no pattern of play or whatsoever, every foot was put wrong and the game was destined for a scoreless draw until Oshoala’s class came through in the two assists she provided Monday Gift for the two late goals.
    So, i don’t know which match you watched oh but do not let bias and hatred for Gernot Rorh becloud your sense of judgement

    Super Falcons have been awful for the past 10 years. The players coming through now are simply average and nothing to write home about. Gone are the days when Nigeria will play against England in England and we will be sure of winning. Patience Avre and the rest did it a friendly match at Wembly where they beat the English girls. Outside Africa, we should just forget it. And even in Africa now, counties like CIV are strong enough now to deny us Olympic ticket. Thomas Dennerby was doing something great until Pinnick and his men frustrated him. Waldrum could be good, but is he really cut out for this job?. Time will tell.

  • We sometimes blame the wrong officials for the dismal performances of our sports men and women, the truth is that you can only reap what you sow. The body responsible for the development of sports is the ministry of sports and not associations like NFF, Grassroot development should start from primary school to university but today we have children that never had a single P.E. lesson from primary one thru the university. Most of our youths are in school so when you separate the schools from grassroot development of sports then don’t expect anything good from sports generally . AS for the super falcons, many of the women are due for retirement but we still rely on them because we are not churning out enough talents to replace them. Since Buhari came into office tell me one investment he has made in sports, he is busy paying Boko haram boys and constructing a railway line to Niger, he is ready to burrow billions to construct grazing routes for his kinsmen but not for the development of our youths – young men and women who have been bruised and battered by the maladministration of Buhari and his government.

    Hopefully the NFF will pay the ladies their allowances before we start seeing demonstrations in front of CAF and FIFA presidents
