The Super Falcons and Washington Spirit forward, Francisca Ordega, scored a hat trick in a 9-0 thriller the Falcons played against Canadian club, Woodbridge Ladies, in a friendly game.
Other goal scorers include Asisat Oshola (brace) and Ngozi Okobi, who scored the opener in the fourth minute.
An obviously delighted coach of the team, Edwin Okon, showed his appreciation towards his girls after the match.
“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 told the media after the match.
“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.
Speaking further, the coach said they will not get distracted by the number of goals but will instead continue working hard to achieve their world cup target.
“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.”
The Nigerian women are drawn in Group D of the FIFA Women’s World Cup alongside USA, Sweden and Australia. The tournament kicks off in Canada on June 6
