Esther Okoronkwo and Asisat Oshoala's goal secure friendly win for the Falcons

By Daniel Oriloye - Esther Okoronko and Asisat Oshoala's goal the difference as Super Falcons start preparation for the women's world cup.

The Super Falcons have now won back-to-back games after ending a run of seven straight defeats with a 1-0 win against Costa Rica, at the 2023 Revelation Cup four-nation invitational tournament in Mexico in February.

Oshoala thought she had broken the deadlock on 22nd minute, after the Haitian keeper dropped a shot but the goal was disallowed for offside.

But in the 40th minute the Falcons through Okoronkwo whose direct free-kick close to the edge of the box went straight into the net.

In the 58th minute Oshoala made it 2-0 from a goalmouth scramble after Haiti failed to clear their lines.

With 15 minutes left to play Haiti pulled a goal back following defensive mixup from the Falcons.

The Falcons will come up against co-host of this year’s women’s World Cup New Zealand in another friendly billed for Tuesday, 11 April at the Mardan Stadyumu in Antalya, Turkey.
