Tokyo 2020: Falcons Held By Tough Ivorians

The Nigerian Super Falcons are still on a level playing ground as far as Tokyo 2020 is concerned after playing a goalless draw with Cote D'Ivoire in Abidjan.

Current reigning African champions put deep crisis that led to the resignation of Swedish gaffer, Thomas Dennerby aside as they file-out against their West African neighbours in the first leg of the Olympics games qualifier inside Parc des sports de Treichville.

Star-studded Falcons tutored by interim manager, Christopher Danjuma, Paraded the likes of Asisat Oshoala(captain), Ngozi Okobi, Chinaza Uchendu and Francisca Ordega but couldn't break the defence of their resolute host.

The Nigeria Football Federation has already scheduled the return leg of the fixture for the Agege Stadium, Lagos on Monday, 7th October 2019.
