Two goals from Rasheedat Ajibade and a goal each from Uchenna Kanu and Asisat Oshoala, earned Nigeria’s Super Falcons a 4-0 win against Ethiopia in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games second round qualifiers on Tuesday, October 31 in Abuja.
The Falcons picked the third round ticket 5-1 on aggregate after holding the Ethiopians to a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Addis Ababa last week.
After defending well for most part of the first half, the Falcons eventually scored in the first minute of added time in the first half after Kanu received a long pass, ran past her markers inside the box and slotted beyond the keeper.
In the 50th minute Ajibade made it 2-0 as she shot into the net after Oshoala put in a low cross from the right.
Oshoala got the third goal with a beautiful header off a cross from Kanu on 68 minutes.
Then to crown it up, in the 72nd minute, Oshoala provided her second assist of the game as she set up Ajibade for her second of the game to make it 4-0.
The Falcons will now meet the winner between Uganda and Cameroon in the third round.
