Nigeria’s under-20 women football team, the Falconets, have advanced to the fifth and final round of African Qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup.
They beat their Cameroonian counterparts 3-0 in the second leg clash at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja, for a 3-0 aggregate victory.
A brace by left–sided midfielder Esther Onyenezide and one by Precious Vincent sent the Young Lionesses back to Yaounde empty-handed.
Onyenezide struck after 22 minutes, before Vincent increased the worries of the visitors eight minutes from the interval. Onyenezide struck again in the 73rd minute to put the match beyond the Lionesses.
The Falconets will now battle with Senegal who defeated Morocco 5-3 on penalties, in a two-legged affair next month for a slot at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica in August.
