The Super Falcons striker had the chance to double the lead for Arsenal Ladies in the 42nd minute but her finish was weak and easily cleared after she was played through by Kelly Smith.

Reacting to the win, the 21-year-old took to her Twitter to write; “I don use money watch English league tire for Naija but here I am today winning the trophy I used to pay to watch.”
