Falconets beat France in U-20 Women’s World Cup

Nigeria’s Falconets beat France 1-0 on Friday in Group D’s opening match at the 2022 U-20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica.

The only goal was scored late into the second half of the match by Falconets’ Flourish Sabastine .

Coach Christopher Danjuma had picked team captain Oluwatosin Demehin and 20 others to wear Nigeria’s colours at the 19-day championship.

The Falconets had to scale the hurdles presented by Central African Republic, Congo, Cameroon and Senegal, winning six of seven matches (they only drew with Cameroon in Douala) to be eligible to fly Africa’s flag once more at the finals in Central America.
