Japan Beat Super Falcons 2-0 In Kobe
The Nigeria-affiliated Super Falcons suffered a 2-0 loss to Japan during their friendly at the Noevire Stadium in Kobe on Thursday morning.
Japan dominated the game from the start, but goalkeeper Chiamaka Nanadozi made several good defenses to deny Nadeshiko.
A replacement was made late in the first half by the Super Falcons’ respective head coach, Randy Waldrum, with Kristi Uchibe replaced by Vivian Ikechuku.
The pattern of the game continued after the break, with Nadeshiko’s defense of the Super Falcons being harassed.
The pressure-linked payoff was made four minutes after the hour mark, with the ball being put into the net by Meena Tamka.
His second place was added from the penalty spot four minutes later by Tanaka.
The Super Falcons have not won their last five matches so far.
Japan have extended their winning streak to three matches against the former African champions.
