AWCON: Super Falcons Stay On Top After Ghana Draw

 

By Adeboye Amosu:

Perennial rivals Nigeria and Ghana played out a 1-1 draw in their Group B fixture at the Africa Women's Nations Cup in Cameroon on Wednesday.

Arsenal striker Asisat Oshoala scored her fifth goal of the competition to put Nigeria ahead in the 19th minute, while Elizabeth Addo levelled scores for the Black Queens two minutes before the break.

With the draw, the Falcons remain on top of the group on four points, the same as Ghana, but with a superior goals difference.
The defending champions who started the competition on a superb note with a win  against Mali on Sunday failed to assert their authority in the opening minutes of the game as Ghana dominated possession.

The Falcons however took the lead  in the 19th minute when the Ghanaian defence failed to deal with Osarenoma Igbinovia's dangerous freekick into the box with the ball hitting Oshoala before sailing into the net.
