Revelations Cup Nigeria 0 Colombia 1 : Falcons' woeful form continues with 7th straight loss

Nigeria's Super Falcons were beaten 1-0 by Colombia at the Leon Stadium on Saturday night in their second Women's Revelations Cup game 


The team coached by Randy Waldrum are in terrible form, to say the least, ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, with the loss to the South Americans their seventh on the bounce. 


The Colombians asserted themselves early in the game with their possession-based game.


Linda Caicedo scored the only goal of the game in the 9th minute for Colombia. 


Toni Payne delivered a cross into the box in the 12th minute but the ball was easily gathered by Colombia keeper, Katherine Tapia. 


With over 20 minutes played, Falcons created a couple of decent chances but met with a resilient defence. 


Rasheedat Ajibade's 24th minute long-range shot was saved by the impressive Tapia in goal for the South Americans.


Head coach Randy Waldrum made some changes in the game at different times with Ayinde making way for Regina Oti in the 40th minute.


Ifeoma Onumonu and Jennifer Echigini were replaced by the duo of Francesca Ordega and Christy Ucheibe with five minutes left on the clock, while Payne and Okoronkwo also did not complete the game. 


Okoronkwo, Ajibade and second half substitute, Uchenna Kanu, were all booked in the second half for their fouls on the nippy Colombians. 


The scoreline was flatterinig to the Super Falcons as goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie pulled off some brilliant saves to prevent the Powerpuff Girls from extending their lead.


Nigeria's last game of the invitational tourney is against Costa Rica on Wednesday.
