Nigeria on Sunday began their campaign at the 2016 Papua New Guinea FIFA Women’s Under-20 World Cup with a humiliating 6-0 loss to Japan.
A hat-trick from Mami Ueno with a brace by Yuka Momiki — and an own-goal from Mary Ologbosere gave Nigeria one of their heaviest losses in the history of the 14-year-old competition.
The Falconets play Canada on Wednesday. The Canadians also lost their first match 5-0 to Spain on Sunday.
Coach Peter Dedevbo’s side have finished as silver medallists twice – in 2010 and 2014 – in the history of the competition.
Japan did not feature at the 2014 edition of the competition in Canada following their third-place finish in 2012. The Asians started the match on the better note as the Nigerians struggled to find their rhythm in the game.
With the hot weather at Port Moresby, water breaks were introduced for the tournament. The Nigerians contained the Japanese pressure but caved in after 34 minutes. Momiki headed into the roof of the net from a cross.
The Asians doubled the lead three minutes later when Ueno tapped into the net from close range after she was found in the penalty area.
