After normal and extra time, the exciting game resulted in a 0-0 stalemate.

Asisat Oshoala, Rasheedat Ajibade, Osinachi, Chiamaka Nnadozie, Gift Monday, and Rofiat Imuran were among the squad members who landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos on Wednesday evening.

At the airport, Fatai Majekodunmi, a board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Fouad Oki, the chairman of the Lagos Football Association, and other dignitaries welcomed them.
