Super Falcons held on during the explosive encounter which saw them come from behind twice to draw 3 – 3 in their first Group D match against Sweden in the on-going FIFA women’s world cup in Winnipeg Canada.

Although, Nigeria ladies got punished by making some careless mistakes from Swedish corner kicks – Desire Oparanozie’s own and poor off-side trap that worked against them. But the Nigerians fought back like wounded lions and equalized the two goals deficit, only to concede another one.



Yet Falcons attack was a handful for the Swedish team. The attack was mostly initiated by Washington DC play maker Francisca Ordega, who eventually won ‘best of the match;’ Desire Oparanozie and Asisat Oshoala continually tormented the Swedish defense. Oshoala got the first equalizer and just about 3 minutes to the end of the match. Ortega scored the second equalizer which brought the game to a draw.



 When asked in the post match interview how far she thinks Nigeria can go in the tournament? Ordega replied: “We (Nigeria) will go all the way to the finals. Keep faith and Believe!

The calculation is this, if Super Falcon defeat Australia and possibly draw against USA, they stand a good chance to equalify for the knock out stage of the tournament – from then, anything can happen!

Super Falcons next match will be on Thursday against Australia at Winnipeg stadium (By 10pm Nigeria time)
