AWCON: Nigeria emerge as champions of Africa

Posted on December 3, 2016

1Desire Oparonozie’s late goal was enough to see the Super Falcons through 1-0 against Cameroon, in a final that saw the Nigerian ladies claim their 8th championship. 

The match between the Indomitable Lioness’ and the Super Falcons was hotly contested, with Cameroon missing several key chances to grab a goal. Eventually, a chance would fall to Oparonozie in the box during the 86th minute, and she slotted in the finish past the defence and the goalkeeper.

In a competition that saw all the knockout matches end 1-0, the final proved to be no different. The Super Falcons claimed their 8th championship, with the latest having come in 2014.
