The Falconets, the Nigerian U-20 women’s football team, have advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2022 FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup, which is being held in Costa Rica.
Nigeria won again against South Korea early on Monday after starting their campaign strong with a victory over France in the opening group C match.
The Chris Danjuma team defeated South Korea 1-0 thanks to a last-minute miracle goal from Esther Onyenezide.
Due to heavy rain, the Falconets’ match against South Korea, which was scheduled to begin at 9 o’clock, was delayed until 10.15 o’clock.
On Wednesday at three in the morning Nigerian time, the Falconets will play Canada in their final group match.
Ghana, another African team, is on the verge of being eliminated from the tournament after losing their first and second games to the USA and Japan, respectively.
