Okay, I had to check this out after seeing so many facebook comments by my Nigerian friends. Apparently the Falconets beat my team. The Falcon-whos? After a google search, I see why Nigeria’s celebrating. The Falconets (Nigerian’s U-20 women’s soccer team) beat the United States (defending champions) at the FIFA U-20 Women’s competition in Germany during a dramatic penalty shootout. Nigeria advances to Thursday’s semi-final against Colombia. It seems that the talented young women are accomplishing what the Nigerian men didn’t in the FIFA World Cup.
