Following the Super Falcons 2-0 win against the Mares of Botswana in the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations Group C encounter in Rabat on Thursday night, Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU appraises the performance of the players…
CHIAMAKA NNADOZIE 7/10
Made two brilliant saves in the first half to deny Botswana. A confident display from the FC Paris goalkeeper.
ONOME EBI 7/10
Led the defence well but her lack of pace was exploited a couple of my times.
OSINACHI OHALE 7/10
Put up an improved performance from the first game. Still need to do more in subsequent games.
MiCHELLE ALOZIE 7/10
Another good display from the hard working defender. She was always willing to support the attack without forgetting her defensive task.
TONY PAYNE 8/10
Thrived in an unfamiliar left-back position. She is definitely a big asset to the team.

Teed up Ifeoma Onumonu for the opening goal. A superb performance from the defensive midfielder.
RITA CHIKWELU 4/10
Substituted after the break following another subdued display.
NGOZI OKOBI-OKEOGHENE 7/0
Made her first appearance of the competition and fully justified his inclusion in the starting line-up.
FRANCIS ORDEGA 7/10
A lively display from the winger. Showed she can still compete at the international level
RASHEEDAT AJIBADE 8/10
A woman of the match display from the talented forward. She was Nigeria’s best performer on the night.
IFEOMA ONUMONU 7/10
Scored the opening goal and wasted another good chance in the second half. A good display from the forward.

The Benfica star scored Nigeria’s second goal two minutes after replacing Rita Chikwelu. She was denied another goal in the 73rd minute.
MONDAY GIFT 5/10
Showed glimpses of her best after replacing Francisca Ordega in the 64 minute.
