Nigeria’s Super Falcons lost their first game to Reggae girls of Jamaica by a lone goal at the Summer Series Tournament at the BBVA stadium in Houston, Texas, USA.
Goal by Deneisha Blackwood in the 51st minute in the game played Thursday night was enough to defeat the African champions.
The team definitely missed the absence of players like Asisat Oshoala, Onome Ebi, Halimatu Ayinde, Osinachi Ohale and Ngozi Okobi-Okeoghene due to injury and visa hitches.
The absence of the usuals on the team welcomed the likes of Oluwatosin Dimehin, Onyinyechi Zogg, Roosa Ariyo and Vivian Ikechukwu on the starting list.
Meanwhile, the match is Falcons first game ever against the Jamaicans.
The falcons will take on Portugal on Sunday, 13th before a clash against world champions, U.S on June 16.
