Nigeria’s Super Falcons beat Cameroon to win 8th African title


The Nigerian Super Falcons have emerged champions of Africa again after beating Cameroon 1-0 in the finals of the 2016 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations on Saturday.

Desire Oparanozie scored the only goal that saw the Falcons beat the Indomitable Lionesses in a nervy final match played at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Omnisports Stadium in Yaoundé.

The win has seen Nigeria secure their eight African title even as Coach of the Nigeria team, Omagbemi became the second individual to win the AWCON as a player and a coach.

But how did the fans enjoy & react to this moment?

Some comments below:

Well done girls! But it vexes me that they never get far in world competition even when they look superior and play better football than their Western and Asia opponents. Methinks that the problem is psychological -- perhaps, an inferiority complex when they meet these non-African teams. In the modern game, psychology is very important, hence the Falcon needs very good and proven sport psychologists particularly, in international competitions.


Please, Premium Times should help us loud the news that Nigeria is
inside nationwide blackout. No electricity in the country. We did not watch any
television. We don’t know who won African Women soccer cup. We can’t even see
the face of our next door neighbour. Everywhere in Nigeria has been in total darkness.
This is the 21st time under President Buhari that Nigeria is in such
total darkness due to power failure. Raji Fashola – the misfit Minister for
Power – is worse than useless. Premium Times is the most respected news medium
in Nigeria. Premium Times should loud the news to the whole world that CHANGE
means total darkness in Nigeria. Please I am begging you. Loud it for United
Nations to hear it loud and clear. Nigerians are committing suicide everyday
because life has no meaning under President Buhari who does not know his left
hand from his right hand.

F.O. Ejiofor.

Congratulations to our girls, The coach and her team. We are proud of you all. However we need to start preparing our Super Falcons for the World Cup. We need to give them all the resources, expose the team to playing top countries, build up their stamina, discover new talents and hire a foreign tactician to help our coaching team. To God Be The Glory.
