Super Falcons starting eleven against Australia


Liverpool Ladies’s Asisat Oshoala leads the Super Falcons attack against Australia in their second group game at the ongoing FIFA women world cup in Canada.

The coach Edwin Okon-led side forced one of the tournaments favourites, Sweden to a 3-3 draw in their first game.

Oshoala will be supported upfront by Desire Oparanozie and Francesca Ordega in a three-pronged attack, the same the coach used to prosecute the game against Sweden.

Despite conceding three goals against the Europeans, coach Edwin Okon kept faith in goalkeeper Precious Dede with veteran Perpetua Nkwocha having her place on the bench.

Coach Alan Stajcic on his own part too has retained the same crops of players that got spanked 3-1 by the U.S.A in their first game.

NIGERIA X1: Dede, Ohale, Ebi, Chukwunonye, Ayinde, Nwabuoku, Ebere, Okobi, Ordega, Oparanozie, Oshoala

AUSTRALIA X1:Barbieri, Alleway, Uzunlar, Catley, Kelond-Knight, Foord, Van Egmond, De Vanna, Gorry, Karr, Heyman
