Falcons Beat Mali To Take WAFU Cup Third Place

The Super Falcons of Nigeria have won bronze medal at the ongoing 2018 WAFU Nations Cup tournament after they came from behind to beat Mali 2-1 in their 3rd/4th place playoff on Saturday evening.

The Malians took a ninth minute lead through Fatoumata Diarra before Chinanza Uchendu scored twice in the 15th and 36th minute to complete the turnaround for Thomas Dennerby’s side.

Uchendu was named the man-of-the-match thereafter for the impressive performance she produced to propel the team to victory.

With the WAFU Cup out of the way, attention will now turn to the Turkish Women’s Cup for the reigning African champions.
