Super Falcons are African Champions for the tenth time
4 December 2016 Sports
Nigeria’s Super Falcons beat hosts Cameroon 1 – 0 to win a record 10th African Women’s Cup of Nations Cup title.
This makes it the eighth time the Super Falcons have pulled off this feat in the tournament format.
It took 86 minutes of action before Desire Oparanozie, who scored the winner in the semi-final against South Africa, to score the decisive goal.
The match which was played in front of a hugely intimidating crowd at the Ahmadu Ahidjo Stadium, Yaounde could have long been decided before the end of 90 minutes but for poor finishing especially from the hosts.
They were however made to pay for their profligacy in front of goal when Oparanozie netted the winner in the 86th minute.
