Super Falcons Benches Cape Verde with 5-0

0 94

The Super Falcons completely outplayed their counterparts from Cape Verde to hit 5-0 in the first leg of their 2024 Women Africa Cup of Nations final round qualifying fixture in Abuja on Thursday.


Uchenna Kanu, with a first-half brace, and substitute Esther Okoronkwo’s second-half brace, swept the eleven-times African champions into a comfortable lead in the fixture and all but earned a place in the finals slated for Morocco in the summer of next year.



Gift Monday rocked the bar from a 22-yard free-kick in the 4th minute before Kanu reaped from a goalmouth melee that followed a corner kick to slot past goalkeeper Jacinta Rodrigues.


In the 14th minute, Kleydiana Borges came close with a shot that was charged down by Oluwatosin Demehin, and five minutes later, Toni Payne missed from close range to let off the Cape Verdeans.
