Nigeria U20 women hammer Beautiful Tours in friendly


Nigeria U20 women defeated Beautiful Tours 8-0 in a friendly match played at the practice pitch of the National Stadium, Abuja.

A hat trick from Charity Reuben and Adebisi Saheed’s brace plus a strike each from Rasheedat Ajibade, Peace Efic and Anam Imo ensured the Falconets massacre the Nigeria Women’s Pro League outfit on Wednesday.

It was the fourth test match for Christopher Danjuma’s ladies having previously defeated Moji Queens 9-0 plus a 2-2 draw and a 5-2 win over two Abuja based selected teams.

The Falconets’ victory with three goals in the first and five in the second highlighted their readiness to face Tanzania in the Fifa U20 Women’s World Cup qualifier.

They will conclude their preparations ahead of next week’s qualifier with a friendly against an unconfirmed Abuja based male side on Saturday.
