Uche Kanu scored a brace as the Super Falcons took a big step towards securing a place at the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations following a 2-0 win against Eternal Foes Black Queens of Ghana at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Lagos on Wednesday.
The Super Falcons started the game strongly but were unable to carve out any clear-cut goal scoring opportunities.
The Super Falcons were ahead seven minutes later with Kanu nodding home Francisca Ordega’s superb cross.
Kanu doubled Nigeria’s lead three minutes later, nodding home this time from a corner kick.
Meanwhile, the second leg will take place in Accra on Sunday.
