Super Falcons of Nigeria on Wednesday evening defeated Lady Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire 1-0 in Abidjan.

The scoreline meant an aggregate 3-0 win for Nigeria to reach this year’s Women Africa Cup of Nations.

In the 34th minute, Nigerien referee Zouwaira Souley awarded a penalty to the homers after judging that Ashleigh Plumptre had tripped an Ivorian striker in the Nigerian area.

Goalkeeper Nnadozie saved the shot, and the contact from the same player off the rebound went into side-netting.

The Super Falcons dug their feet into the ground in the second half, refusing to give the Lady Elephants any leeway.

Plumptre, Captain Onome Ebi, Osinachi Ohale and Michelle Alozie all held their ground as the Elephants increased their onslaughts, scored the back breaker that confirmed a 3-0 aggregate win.
