The Super falcons of Nigeria have crashed out of the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil after losing 2-1 to Equatorial Guinea on Sunday in Bata. The Falcons who failed to get a win at home could not hold on to the lead Ngozi Okobi gave them and conceded two late goals to lose 2-1.
The Super Falcons failed to live up to their billing at the last Women’s World Cup in Canada and many were hopeful that they would make amends at the Rio Olympics. Having now been knocked out, Nigeria will now be watched from the sidelines, the same way it did during the London Olympics.
