Super Falcons suffers defeat to Jamaica


Super Falcons captain Asisat Oshoala missed the team’s 1-0 defeat to Jamaica at this year’s Summer Series – a four-nation tournament in the United States of America due to a visa hitch, Magic FM understands.

Houston Dash forward Deneisha Blackwood scored the only goal of the encounter at the BBVA Stadium, Houston, Texas in the 54th minute to end the Falcons’ unbeaten run of eight games.

Barcelona forward Oshoala, who made history last season as the first African winner of the European Women’s Champions League remains a doubt for the Falcons’ next game against Portugal in the early hours of Sunday.

The 26-year-old scored 15 goals as Barcelona retained the Primera Division title, to add to the Spanish Cup and Super Cup.
