Desire Oparanozie’s 84th-minute strike fired Nigeria to African Women’s Cup of Nations glory with a 1-0 win over Cameroon in Yaoundé.
The tournament's outstanding team failed to repeat the fluency and brilliance of their defeat of South Africa in the semi-final, but Florence Omagbemi’s team found one more sumptuous moment during the closing stages of the game.
It was the second time Nigeria had defeated a host nation in the final and it came as a bitter pill to swallow for Ngachu Enow’s ladies who had created the better chances during the hard-hitting encounter.
This is Nigeria 8th AWCON title out of 10 editions.
⚽ Congratulations Nigeria. Congratulations Super Falcons!!! ⚽ 💪 🇳🇬 👑 😂😂😂
