Nigeria defeat Korea in nervy cracker

Nigeria defeat Korea in nervy cracker

Nigeria’s U-20 Women’s national team the Falconets on Saturday defeated Korea Republic 2-1 in their second Group C game of the FIFA U-20 Women World Cup in Canada.

A Courtney Dike early goal within the first minute of the game put the Nigerians in the driving seat.


A second goal by Chinwendu Ihezuo seemed to prove that the Koreans were in for a difficult night but they rather proved a handful with their neat passing game, patience in build-up play and relentless attacking game.

The Koreans pulled a goal back in the 72nd minute through Kim Soyi following a poor defending by the Falconets.

The game was an end-to-end affair but the Nigerians held on to snatch a victory which takes them to top of the table with 4 points.

They will play England late Wednesday night next week.

The English team were held to a 1-1 draw by Mexico in their game earlier.


What is your opinion about the Fdalconets’ win? Do you think they will beat England on Wednesday? How do you think the team can improve in the next game?
