The Nigeria and Burkina Faso national football teams Under-20 squads have won their first matches in the 2023 WAFU Zone B Women’s Cup which kicked off on Saturday in Kumasi, Ghana.
This Sunday, May 21, the Togo team was beaten 2 to 0 by Burkina Faso, which entered the competition with high hopes after dominating the game in the first half.
The Ladies Stallions made their first breakthrough in the 29th minute of the clash. A goal from Helbi.
The Togolese pushed to find the equalizer, but the Burkinabe did not make it easy for their opponents who will end up conceding a second goal.
It was almost at the end of the match (83rd) that the Belém will increase the burden of the Sparrowhawks. The two teams separated 2-0 at Baba Yara Stadium, where Niger had also lost to Nigeria (7-0) earlier in the day.
