Oshoala Sparkles As Nigeria Beat Haiti In Pre-World Cup Tie

Asisat Oshoala returned to the Super Falcons side in style, scoring as Nigeria beat Haiti 2-1 in a World Cup warm-up game on Friday.

The Barcelona Femeni star has been absent from the Falcons’ team for months but made an instant impact on her return to Coach Randy Waldrum’s side.

While the Super Falcons dominated play in the early parts of the game, they failed to breach the Haitian defence. The Nigerian team applied further pressure on their opponents and got a free-kick but had the Haitians clear it for a corner.

Oshoala was to profit from the resultant kick as she scored from close range but the goal was ruled off for offside.

But in the 40th minute, she finally got the goal from a Michelle Alozie’s cross to hand Nigeria the lead.
