Update |Super Falcon Wins AWCON Title Back To Back
Goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi’s heroic acts on Saturday in Accra helped the Super Falcons of Nigeria to victory at the 11 African Women Cup of Nations in Ghana .
It was however, a very disappointing evening for the Banyana Banyana of South Africa who hoped for a first title but lost 3 – 4 to Nigeria on penalty kicks. At the Accra Sports Stadium , both sides had to endure 120 minutes of play before a winner could emerge.
It is the first time in the tournament’s history that the final match was decided via penalties after extra time .
Nigeria, South Africa and Cameroon are by their success as the competition’s best three Africa ’s flagbearers at the 2019 FIFA Women ’s World Cup in France.
