The Super Falcons of Nigeria walloped Equatorial Guinea’s Nzalang National 9-0 in their final match of the Turkish Women’s Cup competition played at the Emir Sports Complex in Antalya on Tuesday.

The team had defeated CSKA Moscow and Uzbekistan in their opening two matches of the Cup and needed to wrap up on a good note.

Asisat Oshoala, the captain on the day, notched up four goals while defender Gloria Ogbonna (8th minute), Uchenna Kanu (36th), Charity Adule (38th), new-girl Toni Oyedupe Payne (43rd), and Gift Monday (69th) also scored to help the two-time African champions to an embarrassing defeat.

The Super Falcons leave the competition with their head held high after scoring 11 goals and not conceding any in the competition.
