The Super Falcons last night set their title defense on track after defeating debutant Botswana 2-0 to steady their campaign in the ongoing 12th CAF Women’s Africa Cup of Nations WAFCON in RABAT, Morocco.

After the cup holders slumped 1-2 in their opening game against South Africa’s BANYANA BANYANA, goals by United State based IFEOMA ONUMONU and substitute CHRISTY UCHEIBE earned Nigeria all the three points to climb from the bottom of the table to second spot.

ONUMONU who scored two of the three goals that drowned COTE D’IVOIRE in the final qualifying fixture, gave the Falcons the advantage with a sweet finish in the 21st minute from an intelligent through pass by HALIMAT AYINDE and Substitute UCHEIBE, with her first touch of the ball, scored the second goal in the 48th minute, rising highest in the box to nod home TONI PAYNE’S corner kick.

The Super Falcons will on Sunday come up against their counterparts from BURUNDI, with a win certain to guarantee a place in the quarterfinals of the championship.
