Anshu conceded two points early in the match as the Nigerian claimed two points through a superb takedown. And following a tense first half from there on, the 21-year-old Haryana grappler claimed a further two points by the end of the half to make it 4-0. Anshu, however, was at fault for not making any aggressive move in the first half.
The second half saw Anshu pick a point of passivity as Nigerian turned defensive. The strategy paid dividend as she picked further two points with near fall to. With six seconds to go, Anshu picked three points to make it 4-6..
