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.
