Super Falcons duo Onome Ebi and Chiwendu Ihezuo were on target for Henan Husihang in the Chinese Women’s Championship play-off on Tuesday.
Henan Husihang defeated Sichuan 2-1 to book a spot in the 9th-10th place playoff as they look to end the season strongly having narrowly missed out on a quarter final spot.
Chiwendu Ihezuo opened the scoring for Henan with a fine finish in the first half but we’re pegged back few minutes after the restart after Sichuan levelled the score from the penalty spot.
