Onome Ebi, Jennifer Echegini and Desire Oparanozie were on target for the Super Falcons in the game.

But Klimkova in defence of her team said, “We gave up a goal from a set play. We gave up a goal from a cross. The biggest improvement we need to now look for is really gritty defending in the box,” she told the country’s official website.
