One of the first generation female national team players, Okunwa Igunbor has attributed Nigeria's defeat by South Africa at the Africa Women Championship to a lack-luster attack.
Okunwa, who was an attacker in her playing days said in Lagos that the inability of the Falcons to convert scoring chances cost the country the game.
"It was a technical problem that should have been sorted out early in the game. While our girls continued wasting scoring opportunities, the South Africans had just one and utilised it. The flow of the game had Nigeria better placed to score goals and win," she said.
Continuing, Okunwa, now a coach, lamented that "I never saw any of our previous teams that got so many chances in such a competition and wasted them. In the past we were known for scoring big in Africa and looking at that particular game, we were in a pole position to have made it a goal feast but it was as if the South Africans were fantastic.
