The Super Falcons defense of the African Women’s championship in e,phatic fashion with a 6-0 trashing of the Malians. Arsenal forward, Asisat Oshaola was in blistering form, contributing a brace to the team’s effort while Francesca Ordega and Uchechi Sunday also got on the scoresheet.

The Falcons were 2-0 up by half time and it quickly became clear that Mali had some work on their hands to prevent a drubbing. The Malians did not rise to the challenge in the second half as they were ruthlessly dismantled by a rampaging Nigerian team which added four more goals to the tally.

The Falcons are now top of Group B and are considered favorites to win the AWC again.
