The Nigeria national women’s football team, nicknamed the Super Falcons beat South Korea 2-0, at the ongoing Women’s World Cup today.

South Korea’s defender Kim Do-yeon (C) scores an own-goal during her team’s clash with Nigeria.

Asisat Oshoala produced a moment of magic as Nigeria got its Women’s World Cup campaign up and running by seeing off South Korea 2-0 in Grenoble Wednesday.

The Super Falcons, beaten in its opening game by Norway, bounced back courtesy of an own-goal by Korea’s Kim Do-yeun and Oshoala’s fine second half strike.
Oshoala, who won the Golden Ball and Golden Boot at the under-20 World Cup in 2014, underlined her reputation as one of the most exciting players in the game by sealing her team’s victory by rounding off a fine Nigerian move 15 minutes from time.
The 24-year-old, a three-time African footballer of the year, raced onto the Chidinma Okeke’s perfect through ball before accelerating away from her marker and rolling the ball past the goalkeeper.
