Falcons pound Zimbabwe 4-0

By Kate Obodo

The Super Falcons were ruthless against the Mighty Warriors of Zimbabwe at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos yesterday, hammering them 4-0 in the Africa Women’s qualifier played in a scanty stadium, no thanks to the Super Eagles versus Rwanda match played simultaneously.

Leading African female footballer, Perpetual Nkwocha opened the floodgate of goals in the 6th minute and the homers never gave their opponents any breathing space as Desire Oparanozie and Esther Sunday added more in the 14th and 15th minutes respectively to end the first stanza 3-0.

Old war horse, Stella Mbachu added her name on the score sheet 10 minutes into the second half to give the Kadiri Ikhana-tutored team a 4-0 victory and 6-0 on aggregate, having beaten Zimbabwe 2-0 earlier last month in Harare.
