It was a superlative display from the African side as Chidinma Okeke chipped the ball past the South Korean defense in the 75th minute and Asisate Oshoala chased it down, she slipped past Hwang Bo-ram and drew goalkeeper Kim Min-jung off her line before sliding it into an open goal from a tight angle.

Asisate Oshoala, currently plays her professionally football for  “FC Barcelona”. Nigeria now have a huge task ahead when they locked head with the host nation to play their final group match on Monday June 17, which will decide the who top the group. This will be a golden chance for the Super falcons to reach the knock stage for the very first time since 1999.
