Nigeria Vs Germany : FIFA U-20 Women WC Final On Monday At 12am

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


Asisat Oshoala scored four times as Nigeria reached the final with a thumping
6-2 victory over Korea DPR in the highest-scoring semi-final ever seen at the
FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. Oshoala also laid on two more goals in a win
that leaves the Super Falconets to face Germany on Sunday at Montreal's
Olympic Stadium, and the North Koreans to play for third place at the same
Nigeria have had a tendency to score quick goals during their time at the FIFA
U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014, and Courtney Dike continued that trend
with a goal barely more than a minute after kick-off. Oshoala set the tone by
setting it up, releasing Dike in behind Korea DPR’s captain Choe Sol-Gyong
before the No8 expertly picked her spot just inside the far post. At the half-way
point of the first period, Oshoala doubled Nigeria’s lead, capitalising on a poor
touch from centre-half Song Kyong-Hui before rounding the keeper and
passing into an open goal.
Less than ten minutes later, Ri Un-Sim – arguably the North Koreans’ most
dangerous attacker throughout the tournament – pulled one back with a great
bit of individual skill after receiving a long ball from midfield. Ri beat two
defenders on the cutback and finished past Sandra Chiichii with a powerful shot
into the top corner. From there, Korea DPR looked inspired in search of an
equaliser but the score remained 2-1 at half-time before Nigeria swiftly put the
game out of reach within minutes of the restart.
In similar fashion to her appearance and goal in the quarter-finals against New
Zealand, Uchechi Sunday came on as a substitute and within a minute scored to
restore her team's two-goal lead. Oshoala then put the game out of reach on
the hour mark when she hit a stunning shot from 20 yards out that left Kim with
no chance as it flew into the top corner.
Korea DPR had one last glimmer of hope two minutes later when Ugo Njoku
handled the ball in her own area, allowing Jon So-Yon to score from the penalty
spot. However, Oshoala’s quality shone through yet again in the 68th minute
when she completed her hat-trick, beating Song and winning a foot race with
Kim to once more fire into an empty net.
Nigeria were not finished there, though, and with five minutes from time the
No4 matched the number on her jersey. The goal came as a result of another
North Korean defensive miscue less than six yards from goal, resulting in a
simple tap-in.
