Nigeria’s women’s national football team, the Super Falcons, secured a 2-1 victory against Haiti, who will be making their debut at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, in an international friendly match in Antalya, Turkey on Friday.

Asisat Oshoala, who last played for the Falcons in July 2022 at the Women’s Cup of Nations, marked her return with a goal. Desire Oparanozie, who has been out for a longtime also made a comeback.

The win against Haiti comes after the Falcons broke a seven-match losing streak with a 1-0 victory against Costa Rica at the 2023 Revelation Cup in Mexico in February.

Oshoala had a goal disallowed for offside in the 22nd minute, but Esther Okoronkwo’s direct free-kick in the 40th minute put the Falcons ahead. Oshoala added another goal in the 58th minute, making it 2-0.

However, Haiti pulled one back in the final 15 minutes due to a defensive mix-up. The Falcons will face New Zealand, one of the co-hosts of the 2023 Women’s World Cup, in another friendly match on April 11.

The tournament, co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, is scheduled to take place from July 20 to August 20.
