Rasheedat Ajibade calmly converted a penalty on 25 minutes after she was brought down to give the Falcons the lead. Peace Efih made it 2-0 for the Nigerian side on 28 minutes, while Uchenna Kanu made it three from close range a minute later.

Kanu struck the fourth goal a minute later but the referee ruled it out for offside. But she was unstoppable on 46th minute to make it 4-0 for Nigeria and a brace for herself.
