Falconets grab World Cup ticket

Nigeria became the first African team to qualify for the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, after beating South Africa 1-0 on Saturday in Johannesburg.

Striker Adeboyejo Yetunde scored the only goal of the match in the first half to power Falconets to a double and book their ticket for the global championship courtesy a 7-0 aggregate win.

With a 6-0 win from the first leg, the Falconets confirmed their superiority over the Basetsana by silencing them at their backyard to maintain their impressive record of being the only African team to have qualified for every edition of the global youth women’s championship since its inception in 2002.

The visitors sat back and contained the constant pressure from their hosts to cruise to victory in the second leg clash of the final round of the qualifying series.
