Super Falcons ace Ngozi Okobi, who was voted player of the game in a six-goal thriller against Sweden, has said the Swedes were lucky to escape with the draw as they were not better than the Nigerians.
Okobi, who scored Super Falcons first goal in the spirited comeback, said costly mistakes on the part of the team gifted Sweden a point.
“We went into the game with the aim and determination to beat Sweden. It was not as if they played better than us, they were just lucky not to lose the game, they got their goals due to the costly mistakes we made,” Okobi said.
The Delta Queens player scored a goal and assisted Francisca Ordega for the third goal with a sublime pass.
Nigeria face Australia in their next group game on Friday.
