Super Falcons head coach, Edwin Okon has taken positive from the side participation at the ongoing Fifa Women's World Cup in Canada.

A lone goal loss to the United States of America in the last group clash on Tuesday in Vancouver saw his side being eliminated from the championship.

Two-time Olympic gold medalist, Mary Abigail 'Abby' Wambach scored the match winner at the dot of 45 minutes.

Okon said his opponents made their chances count positively in the keenly contested top group encounter.

"It was a great experience for us here in Canada. We weren’t focused enough in a few situations today (Tuesday).

"I wasn't surprised to see USA make substitutions that were more defensive after our sending off as they knew they were playing a good team.

"You always have a 50-50 chance in every game. Today USA made the most of one of their chances and we didn't even though we had several," said the former Falconets head coach to

Nigeria ended the preliminary campaign at the bottom on paltry one points from possible nine which ensured the side immediate elimination from the biennial global football showpiece.

The side conquerors, the United States of America and runners-up, Australia claimed the group two automatic round of 16 tickets.
