A brace each by Rasheedat Ajibade and Folashade Ijamilusi and a goal each by Imo Anam and Cynthia Aku steered the Nigeria U20 women team to a 6-0 win over their Tanzanian counterparts in Dar es Salaam on Sunday.

First half ended 4-0 in favour of the Falconets at the Azam Stadium.

The win took the Falconets to a 9-0 aggregate win over the East Africans, and a place in the second round of the African qualifying series for next year’s FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup finals.

Ajibade also netted a brace in the first leg at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City a fortnight ago, with the other goal by defender Lilian Tule.

The two –time World Cup silver medallists will now square up against the winner of the fixture between Morocco and Senegal in the second round, set for November 2017
