The Super Falcons put up a spirited performance which unfortunately was not enough as they fell 2-1 to world champions United States of America in their second friendly game on Tuesday, Completesports.com reports.
It was a much improved display from the Falcons who were hammered 4-0 by the US in their first meeting on Saturday.
The game which was played inside the Audi Field, Washington DC, saw the Americans maintain their winning streak against the Falcons as they have now won all eight fixtures between both teams.
After containing their hosts in the early part of the game, the Falcons’ defence was eventually breached on 24 minutes as Blessing Demehin put the ball into her own net.
The Falcons fought back and were rewarded as Uchenna Kanu equalized in the 50th minute with a fine strike.
But the Americans went 2-1 up through Rosemary Lavelle who headed in a cross from the left off the boot of Megan Rapinoe.
