Super Falcons are African champions… Again

Super Falcons are African champions… again

Nigeria’s Super Falcons on Sunday defeated defending champions Equatorial Guinea 4-2 to win the 7th African Women’s Championship in South Africa.

It was the 6th time Nigeria was emerging champions of Africa and the win served as sweet revenge for the Super Falcons who lost out at the semi final stage of the 2008 tournament to the Equatorial Guineans.

Perpetua Nkwocha shot Nigeria into the lead in the first half but it wasn’t until the second half that the game came alive with both sides thrilling spectators to an incredible display of attacking football with five goals arriving in the final half-hour of the game, including two own goals by the Equatorial Guineans.
