Nigeria’s Falconets completed a double over the Basetsana of South Africa to qualify for their ninth FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.

They pummelled the visitors 6-0 in the second leg of the final round of the qualifiers to pull through 8-0 on aggregate.

The team, managed by Christopher Danjuma, took control of the game early on and went ahead after seven minutes through Monday Gift’s effort.

In the 14th minute, Gift almost doubled the Falconets’ lead with a well-placed lob that was heading into the top corner, only to be denied by the crossbar.

Seven minutes later, Ajibade rounded the goalkeeper before slotting the ball into the back of the net for the second goal.

The Falconets went three goals up through Nasarawa Amazons forward, Anam Imo, who finished off a rebound after Folashade Ijamilusi’s effort hit the woodwork.

The scoring spree continued in the 32nd minute through Ajibade who tapped home from close range.

There was still one more goal in the first half and it came from Gift who showed predatory instincts to score.

In the second half, the Falconets scored one more goal to round up a one-sided clash at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.

With 17 minutes left on the clock, Imo completed her brace to make it 6-0 before Gift got sent off for a second bookable offence.
