Kenyan girls lose to Nigeria
23 January 2012, 07:49
Nairobi - Nigeria’s Patience Okaeme scored a brace to steer her team to a 2-0 win over their Kenyan counterparts in the first round of the Fifa World Cup U-17 Africa qualifier staged at Nyayo National Stadium.
The loss gives Kenya a huge task of erasing a two goal deficit in the return leg tie slated in a fortnight in Abuja. The winner will eventually meet either Namibia or Botswana in the second round.
There was delay of eight minutes before the match kicked off after the Kenyan delegation complained that their visitors were fielding several over-aged players with Alde Victoria, SarahNnodim, Patience Okaeme, Alimba Chioma, Joy Bokin, Amos Iheaoma and Oluchi Ofeabu in question.
