Super Falconets forward Rasheedat Ajibade is in cloud nine after seeing the team record their first win at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup against Haiti on Thursday.
The Nigerian girls bounced back from the defeat against Germany in their first game to beat the Haitians 1-0.
Ajibade scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 36th minute
