The Super Falcons qualified for the semi-finals of the ongoing African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) holding in Ghana by smashing six goals past Equatorial Guinea in their final group encounter on Saturday.
The Falcons went into the game in need of a win regardless of the result of the other game between Zambia and South Africa in Accra.
Ordega, who bagged the Player of the Match award against the Shepolopolo, opened the scoring for Nigeria in the 10th minute and Oshoala ended her AWCON drought, scoring her first goal in five straight matches three minutes later.
The Dalian Quanjian forward extended their Super Falcons lead to 3-0 and grabbed her brace of the match in the 23rd minute before netting her hat-trick in the 10 minutes later to put her side 4-0 up at halftime.
Three minutes after the restart, the ruthless Nigerians continued from where they left it in the opening half with Oparanozie adding a fifth of the match through a brilliant pass from Ordega.
Nzalang fought to keep the Nigerians at bay but that did not last for too long, captain Chikwelu managed to force her way through to score the sixth to wrap up their second big win on the bounce.
With the victory, Nigeria has set up a semi-final date with last year’s finalist Cameroon at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
