The Nigeria under-20 women football team, the Falconets, on Saturday in Abuja beat their South Africa counterpart, Basetsana, 2-1 in the first leg match of the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Falconets scored their first goal of the match in the 27th minute by Kanu Grace wearing jersey number 11.
Kalu Patience with Jersey number 14 netted the second goal in the 45th minute.
The South Africans, however, scored their first goal through a penalty in the added time by Gabriela Salgado with Jersey 11.
Speaking after the match, Falconets’ Chief Coach, Peter Dedevbo, said he was not satisfied with the result.
Dedevbo said: “I am not satisfied with the result and but I am not disappointed.
“My team would have done better.
“Though they did their best, I cannot tell what happened.
“The girls are very fit.
“I don’t have fitness problem with the girls and I hope they will play better in South Africa.
“We are not going to play defensive game in South Africa.
“We will play attack.
“This will make them come out and remain in the midfield.”

The Head Coach of South Africa, Elizabeth Migchelsen, however, expressed satisfaction with the result and hoped that her team would beat Nigeria in the second leg.
