What made this achievement even more remarkable was the presence of four Super Falcons players on the field, with Gift Monday shining as the standout performer.

In a match that saw her score two goals within two minutes at the Football field Adeje, her teammates Esther Okoronkwo and Rinsola Babajide also played significant roles, while Rasheedat Ajibade started on the bench for Atletico Madrid.
