Breaking :FIFA Women’s World Cup: Falcons Hold Canada In Melbourne



Against all odds, the Super Falcons of Nigeria in the early hours of Friday held highly rated Canada to a goalless draw in Melbourne, Australia.
Canada, rated 5th in the world, were tipped to whip Nigeria, but the interesting encounter ended 0-0.
Nigeria’s striker Ifeoma Onumonu had a good shot saved in the first half while Falcons goalie and match captain Chiamaka Nnodozie saved a penalty early in the second half taken by Canada’s Christine Sinclair.
U20 star Deborah Abiodun received a red card late in the game, but the hard fighting Nigerian side salvaged a draw in the encounter.
Nigeria’s second match will be against co-host Austalia on July 27.
