The Falconets of Nigeria began their 2022 FIFA under 20 Women’s World Cup in style as they defeated France 1 nil at the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica, San Jose.
Sebastine Flourish’s 86th minute goal made the difference on the night as she slots the ball to the bottom right corner from Okpe Blessing’s sublime pass.
Despite the severe weather condition which made the referee stopped the game after twenty minutes, Christopher Dajuma’s side were dominant in play.
The Falconets are currently second on the log behind South Korea who also won their opening match 2 nil against Canada.
The team will now take on South Korea on Sunday, at 9 p.m Nigerian time.
