By Johnny Edward: The Super Falcons of Nigeria made it three wins from three games at the ongoing West African Football Union (WAFU) Women’s Cup, defeating Togo 3-1 in Abidjan on Monday night.
Goals from Anam Imo, Chinaza Uchendu and Chioma Wogu gave the Super Falcons a 3-0 lead before Woedikou Afi grabbed a consolatory goal with nine minutes left to play.
The Super Falcons got off to a flying start after a cagey 40 minutes with Anam Imo beating Togolese goalkeeper Amouklou Ame from close range to score.
Chinaza Uchendu headed in a cross from Chioma Wogu to increase Nigeria’s tally at the start of the second half.
In the 71st minute, Wogu tapped in a rebound after Togolese goalkeeper Ame failed to hold on to the ball from Lilian Tule’s freekick.
Togo grabbed a late consolatory goal in the 81st from the spot. Woedikou Afi converted the spot kick after Glory fouled Togolese striker Gnintegegma Odette in the box.
