Nigeria, Ghana and Cameroon confirmed their superiority with convincing wins in the First Round first leg matches of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup France 2018 qualifiers over the weekend.
Cameroon were the biggest winners thanks to a 9-0 drubbing of Guinea away in Conakry on Saturday whilst Nigeria made light work of Tanzania with a 3-0 win in Benin City. Earlier on Friday, Ghana’s Black Princesses proved too strong for host Algeria, handing them a 5-0 beating in Algiers.
The results put the trio in a good stead as far as places at the penultimate round of the African qualifiers are concerned.
Right from the kick off, Nigeria’s Falconets went in search of the goals but for some poor marksmanship by Mary Ime and Rasheedat Ajibade in the opening minutes.
The West Africans went into the break with a goal up courtesy Lilian Tule, who struck a superb free-kick past Tanzania goalie Gelwa Yonah on 22 minutes.
