Falconets of Nigeria beat Haiti 1-0 on Thursday, in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup to keep hopes alive.
A first-half strike from the spot from the boots of Rasheedat Ajibade was enough to keep the enterprising Haitians in a cold chill.
The 36th minute of the game will remain a fresh timing for the ladies who needed the win to keep hopes of longer stay in the competition.
Falconet’s Anam Imo was fouled in the minute by Dougenie Joseph. Captain of the team, Rasheedat stepped up to the game in resumption of her goal scoring prowess in the qualifiers in which she emerged the highest goal scorer.
Nigerian goalie, Chiamaka Nnadozie, was not adjudged the Player of the Match on mere beauty.
Nnazodie kept the howling Haitians at bay, denying them at critical times.
Nigeria sits second in Group D with three points behind Germany who beat China 2-0 the same day.
