Nigeria’s Super Falcons have qualified for the final of the 2016 African Women Cup of Nations going on in Cameroon after beating the Bayana Bayana of South Africa 1-0 in a feisty battle on Tuesday, November 29, 2016.
Petite striker Desire Oparanozie’s goal in the 53rd minute was all that condemned the Bayana Bayana of South Africa to a defeat.
The South African were determined and exemplified lots of resilience in the encounter, and they would have even went ahead in the 20th minutes, but they missed the scoring chance.
Nigeria’s tournament leading goalscorer Asisat Oshoala was not given the chance to operate by the South Africans as both side went to the break goalless.
Falcons changed their pattern of play in the second half, and after eight minutes of play, Desire Oparanozie scored a fantastic goal that sent the defending champions to the final.
Nigeria will now face Cameroon in what will be a battle of supremacy in the final of the 2016 AWCON on Saturday, December 3, 2016.
