Deneisha Blackwood’s goal in the 51st minute was enough to hand Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum, his first defeat with the African champions.
Efforts by Oluwatosin Dimehin, Onyinyechi Zogg, Roosa Ariyo and Vivian Ikechukwu, who received their first international cap for the Falcons were not enough to secure a victory.
Meanwhile, the match is the Super Falcons’ first game ever against the Jamaicans.
Coach Randy Waldrum speaking after the game said that he was proud of his team especially in the second half, though not impressed with the way the team started the game but still praised his team’s fighting spirit.
He said changes will be made in the next game since himself and his technical crew now have a better understanding of the players they have in camp.
The Nigerian side will take on Portugal on Sunday, before a clash against world champions, USA on June 16.
