Falconet Suffer Heavy Defeat in Hand Of Japan At Pupa New Guinea 2016.

Nigeria's Falconet kicked off their FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Pupa New Guinea 2016 campaign with a humiliating defeat in the hand of Japan in group B at Bava Park, Port Moresby.
Japan's  Mami Ueno bagged Hat-tricked while Yuka Momiki scored twice and an own goal from Nigeria's Ologbosere as the young Nadeshiko run riot pass Nigeria's Falconet.

Falconet were poor in the start as Japan capitalize on that and put pressure from the start, with Ueno's effort in the opening minute being tipped on the crossbar and out for early corner.
Japan took the lead through Momiki's close-range header in the 32nd minute and double their advantage just three minutes later Uneo slotted past Nigerian goalkeeper Sandra Chichi to wrap the first half with a two-nil advantage.

Momiki got her second for the day in the 51st minute of the second half while Nigeria's Mary  Ologbsere's own goal in the 56th minute to add to the helpless Falconet.
Ueno recorded her second in the 62nd minute, making her way through the Nigerian's defense and slotted home from close-range. She completed her hat-trick in the 82nd minute with a wonder goal after embarking on a solo run and smashing a powerful right into the top corner to beat the Nigerian goalkeeper.

Falconet will face Canada in their next game on November 16th at Brava Park while Japan will face Spain in a top-of-the-group clash.
