WAFU Cup: Kanu can’t stop scoring, Nigeria beats Mali

By Harry Awurumibe,  Abuja

Two second half goals from Rafiat Sule and “goals-queen”Uchenna Kanu are what Nigeria needed to beat a stubborn Mali to emerge the Group B winner and to set up another grudge semi final match with arch-rivals Ghana.

It took the Super Falcons 67 minutes on the clock before they could break the resolve of the determined Malian ladies who were reduced to 10-players earlier on. And it was Sule who put Nigeria ahead before Kanu scored in the added time (90+2) to ensure that Nigeria garnered the maximum 9 points on offer in Group B.
