U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers: Liberia drowns Guinea 3-0

It was an amazing weekend of football for Liberians on Sunday, January 19, after the U20 women’s national team secured a 3-0 victory their Guinean counterparts at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in the ongoing FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers. Blanco FC forward, Agatha Nimene scored a hat-trick to give Liberia an advantage ahead of the return leg in Conakry, Guinea.

The match, which was marked by an impressive turnout from football fans, saw Liberia taking the lead in the 18th minute through a free-kick that was superbly swung in by Agatha to get the spectators out of their seats.

However, Liberia utilized their attacks, with Agatha and Pauline Agbostou stacking from both ends. The second curtain raiser finally came after Agatha perfectly converted a spot-kick that resulted from a handball in Guinea’s penalty box. Despite the goals deficit, the visitors kept their composure but were unable to get a goal consolation.

Coach Robert Lartey’s girls finally closed things up by scoring from the spot for the second time, recording a hat-trick. The spot-kick was as a result of another handball committed in Guinea’s 18-yard box. Liberia will travel to Guinea for the return-leg that is expected to take place between January 31, to February 2, 2020. Culled Liberian Observer
