A goal in each half saw Nigeria commence their 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup campaign with a 2-0 victory over Korea Republic in Saitama to take an early lead at the top of Group B.

Ngozi Okobi opened the scoring on the quarter-hour mark, while Desire Oparanozie extended the advantage midway through the second period.

The Nigerians, backed by a buoyant and colourful band of supporters, went ahead following smart work from Francisca Ordega on the right side of the box, with the midfielder playing a perfect low ball across the face of goal for Okobi to score.

With Okobi, Ordega and Oparanozie all dangerous in possession, Nigeria provided a regular threat, although Korea Republic, with their short-passing game in evidence, provided a tough opponent for the 2010 runners-up.

However, Korea Republic suffered a massive blow in the latter stages of the first half with midfield schemer Yeo Minji, the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup adidas Golden Ball winner, forced off with injury.

Nigeria claimed a deserved second with Ebere Orji’s cross into the penalty finding Oparanozie who scored with a stylish header. Late chances went the way of Esther Sunday but Nigeria had to make do with a 2-0 scoreline.

“This was the planned result,” said Nigeria coach Okon Edwin. “We’ve even improved compared to last World Cup and we’ll try to do better than that, which means that we want to do better than second place."

The girls (Women??) played very well and deserved their victory against South Korea but when they come up against teams like Brazil, USA and Japan (World Champions), they always crumble. On a more serious note, Nigeria is still cheating at age-group competitions. Some of those girls or women are in their late twenties and early thirties judging by their looks or is it the training or I am growing old?

Even if they are over 100, you have no proof, so Zip it up and allow those doing something positive for Nigeria do their thing. Negative people are non-achievers.

Brazil late show denies Nigeria


For the second time in as many matches a late equaliser from Brazil has rescued a point for the South Americans at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, with Giovanna Oliveira's header denying Nigeria early passage to the knockout stage.

A superbly hit drive from Francisca Ordega a minute from half-time appeared enough for Nigeria to claim all three points in a hard-fought and at-times physical encounter in Saitama.

However, Oliveira secured another important point for Brazil with a glancing header three minutes from the end, after an injury-time equaliser earned A Selecao a draw in their opener against Italy.

Despite a good pace to the contest in the sapping heat, there were few chances on goal until the later stages of the first half when both teams made some inroads, with Nigeria eventually profiting from Odega's intervention.

The second half was an entirely different affair with Brazil on top and narrowly failing to score on several occasions.

Notably, Ingrid headed home a free-kick at the back post only to be denied by the offside flag. Brazil finally made their domination pay as Thais Guedes' whipped in free-kick was glanced home.

Nigeria will have a second opportunity to qualify for the last eight when they meet Italy, while Brazil face a must-win encounter with Korea Republic.
