Record 8-time African champions Nigeria were outplayed in an international friendly in France. Super Falcons/Eskilstuna of Sweden midfielder, Ngozi Okobi has insisted they will not be trashed by their French counterparts in the friendly with France. Okobi said they cannot afford to go the way of Ghana’s Black Queens who were whitewashed 8-0 but France ended up beating the Falcons.
FT: France 8-0 Nigeria
Valérie Gauvin scored a hat-trick as France thrashed African champions
#Nigeria 8-0 in a friendly in Le Mans. The 2019 World Cup hosts too ‘fast & furious’ for hapless Super Falcons. Nigeria’s heaviest defeats 8-0 v Germany (95), Norway (2010) & France
We are still very much proud of them.
Here is a roundup photo of their trip.
