Nigeria’s Super Falcons easily qualified for the quarterfinals of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday, defeating Burundi 4-0.
It was only a matter of how many goals they would score that determined their victory, and it didn’t take long for them to open their account on the night.
Rasheedat Ajibade scored from the penalty spot in the 25th minute after being fouled while attempting to round Burundi goalkeeper Jeanine Irakoze.
As a result of the clash, a Burundi goalkeeper was injured and had to be replaced by 16-year-old Amissa Inarunkundo.
Due to sloppy defending from her back line, the newly introduced goalkeeper allowed two quick goals. Peace Efih and Uchenna Kanu achieved both objectives.
Kanu scored the fourth goal minutes into the second half to seal the game.
Nigeria finished second, trailing South Africa, which defeated Botswana 1-0, and will now face Cameroon in the quarterfinals for a spot in next year’s Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
