Scorer of the goal against Korea Republic in the Sunday’s match at the on going FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, Esther Onyenezide  has warned the rest of the teams that they haven’t seen nothing yet.

Her killer-punch curling shot was the difference between the hectic encounter of Nigeria and Korea Republic.

She was subsequently declared the player of the match.

She told the media after her prized nomination as the player of the match that the Falconets feared no team. “We are a giant in Africa and fear no other team.
