Last Saturday, December 3rd, marked the final of a very prestigious sports event that is held annually: the Women Africa Cup of Nations. The championship was held for the 12th time, and Nigeria, having taken part in every Cup of Nations since the beginning, scored its eighth win, ranking higher than the rest of the African countries.
The winning team is known as the Nigerian Super Falcons and consists of top female footballers of Nigeria. Dressed in their recognizable green uniform, the team looked very confident during the game, which eventually brought Nigeria its new victory and allowed the country to celebrate in unity.
The match, which was played at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Omnisports Stadium, Yaounde, was rather unpredictable and kept the viewers on the edge of their seats until Desire Oparanozie scored a goal on the 86th minute, beating Cameroon 1-0. The Nigerian Super Falcons weren’t the only triumphant participants of the event, as the team coach Omagbemi became the second Women Africa Cup of Nations coach to win both as a coach and, earlier, as a player.
