Reigning Africa Champions, the Super Falcons failed were forced to a 1-1 draw by their hosts Senegal in the 2016 African Women championship qualifiers in Dakar.
The Nigerian ladies scored first in the encounter which went down at the Stade Léopold Sédar Senghor but the hosts rallied for an equalizer to still keep the game open going into the second leg.
Substitue, Chioma Wogu who came in for injured Desire Oparanozie netted on the brink of half time to hand the Super Falcons a narrow lead against the host going into the break.
However, seven minutes into the second half, the Teranga Lioness found the back of the net to restore parity.
Hard as Nigeria tried to get back in front, they could not and would have to kill the game in the return leg billed for Tuesday, 12th April in Abuja.
