Falcons Loses to Japan in Chiba.

Nigeria’s senior women national team lost to China in the second of a two-legged international friendly on Thursday.

The reigning world champions beat the coach Edwin Okon-led team by 2-0 at the Fukuda Denshi Arena in Chiba.

Mizusho Sakaguchi and Aya Miyama (penalty) scored for the Asians as the Sasaki Norio’s ladies maintained their supremacy over the six-time African champions.

China had most of the possession in the opening period of the game but failed to create clear-cut chances from play.

Miyama converted from the penalty spot in the 21st minute to help
the hosts gain the lead after being forced down by a Nigerian defender.
