Super Falcons of Nigeria have emerged as African champions once again after a 1-0 victory against the Indomitable Lioness of Cameroon on Saturday, December 3.

Desire Oparanozie’s 84th-minute strike  was the difference as the Falcons edge their opponent right at their own backyard.

The Guingamp star’s goal in the second half was enough to separate the two teams and give Florence Omagbemi’s women an eighth African crown.

The Indomitable Lionesses, 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.
