Glory Ogbonna Scores First Goal As Super Falcons Make Short Work Of Nzalang National


African champions Nigeria steamrolled Equatorial Guinea’s Nzalang National 9-0 in their third and final match of the Turkish Women’s Cup competition played at the Emir Sports Complex in Antalya on Tuesday morning.

Edo Queens Captain, Glory Ogbonna opened the floodgates as early as the 8th minute, before Oshoala, four-time African Woman Player of the Year, netted twice from six yards as the Guineans conceded penalties within two minutes. Oshoala, who was Player of the Tournament and Top Scorer at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Canada in 2014, made it four in the 26th minute, before former junior international Uchenna Kanu, Charity Adule, and Oyedupe Payne ensured a 7-0 half-time lead.

Overall, the Nzalang National scored no goal at the tournament, lost all three matches, and conceded a total of 16 goals.

The Super Falcons have much to brag about having won all three matches, scoring 11 goals, and refusing to allow any goal into their net as goalkeepers Tochukwu Oluehi (against CSKA Moscow and Uzbekistan) and Christy Ohiaeriaku kept things absolutely tight at the rear.
