The Super Falcons of Nigeria, today, outclassed the female national team of South Korea in a tough encounter that saw the Falcons score two unreplied goals at both halves of the game.

The Falcons went a goal up in the 29th-minute after an own goal from Kim Do-yeon, who rammed the ball into her own net. Asisat Oshoala’s clinical finish doubled the lead 15 minutes before the end of the game.

The defeat spells doom for the Koreans who are underneath the table in Group A with no points after their first two games, while Nigeria shares three points apiece with Norway and France ahead of their clash tomorrow.

The Super Falcons will be looking to seal qualification into the knockout stage of the Women’s World Cup for the first time in 20 years, following the vital win against South Korea, despite being pummeled 3-0 by Norway in their opening fixture.

Four third place finishers from the six groups will qualify, meaning three points could be enough to see the Super Falcons through to the knockout stage of the competition for the first time since 1999, when they reached the quarter-finals in the United States.
