Ordega then plundered an eye-catching   treble after the interval with Courtney Dike grabbing a brace.

Perpetua Nkwocha was also on target for the African champions.

Coach Edwin Okon said he was more impressed with his team’s performance than the huge score line.

“It was a very good game today. Though we won by a massive margin, I was very impressed with the team’s coordination in all departments,” he said.

“This does not mean we won’t still correct a few lapses here and there but I can see the team preparing well for the tournament proper.

“I’m glad we scored many goals because we need a strong firepower upfront to achieve our dream which is to lift the trophy of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. We will continue to work hard until we achieve this.”
