AWC 2014: Nigeria’s Super Falcons are African Champion for seventh time

The Nigerian national women’s team,  Super Falcons, have reclaimed the African title they lost two years ago after they beat their Cameroonian counterparts 2-0 on Saturday in Windhoek, Namibia.

Two goals in the first half from Desire Oparanozie and Asisat Oshoala was all that was needed for Nigeria to claim an astonishing seventh Africa Women Championships  title.

Despite not getting on the scorers’ sheet, Francisca Ordega was voted best player of the match

The Falcons won all their matches in this tournament scoring 16 goals and conceding just three goals in the process.

Nigeria will now proceed to the Canada 2015 World Cup as African champion.

Meanwhile, striker Desire Oparanozie won the golden boots award after scoring five goals

Ngo Ndom from Cameroon won best goal keeper award while  Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala again was voted the Most Valuable Player.

    When you have a reformer for a president news like this don’t come as surprising–under Jonathan’s watch the once fearless super eagles was able to triumph in the most prized African football after 20years–only for the Mohammedans to end this reform in our national team by pressurising Keshi to stick to federal character and includes Mohammedans in the team hence the super eagles success was shortlived and Keshi was shown the exit door–he was immediately replaced by a Mohammedan even when the likes of JJ Okocha, Sunday Oliseh and Papillo Kanu are well and kicking–these are globally renowned players–anyways thank you GEJ for bringing about good luck in every facets of the common Nigerian

      You are indeed a bigot.The last time I checked,the Super Eagles is a National team and NOT a Christian or Southern team.By the way,is the sports minister a ‘Mohammedan’ or is it the Chairman of NFF that is a ‘Mohammedan?I remember the last outing of the Super Eagles at the National stadium Abuja was a success courtesy of two goals from Ahmed Musa and another goal from his team mate.I can’t remember either Keshi or the two goal scorers attributing this success to either region,religion or Good luck.It was a Team effort.But then,I guess lesser minds like yours always view issues from the narrow prism of ethnicity,religion and region.It is such a pity.

      I have got questions for you ethnic bigot !

      1. Was Dumbo or a “Mohammedan” the Minister of Sports when Eagles won the African Cup?
      2. So where was Dumbo when the “Mohammedan” pressured Keshi? Was he busy, as usual drinking ogogoro ?
      3. Are V.P. Sambo, GEJ Campaign Chairman Haliru Mohammed and PDP Chairman Muazu among ohers not a “m0hamedan” ?
      4. Two days ago, u were sober and preaching religious tolerance, could it be you missed your drugs today ?

      Was Jonathan not president when we lost it two years ago? God punish you morons for abusing Nigerians’ sensibility by arrogating some success to a man who does not even know what it means to be a leader let a lone being a president…

    I am amused when some useless Nigerians equate our victories in sports to jonathan. What has jonathan got to do with it? This is not the first time we have won sports laurels so why politicize it?
    I congratulate our Super Falcons but there are lots of work to be done in preparation for Canada next year. They can be good for Africa but I am not convinced they are good for World Cup. Their passes are less than 50% accurate, too many fouls committed, their coordination far less than perfect, there is a need for the coach to improve their strategies, the coach needs more overseas training and there are other flaws that must be corrected. I watched all their matches and we demand great improvement because they can’t play France, Germany, and other teams like the way they played in Namimbia. Anyway, Big Congratulations To our SUPER FALCONS.

    Nigeria’s progress going forward will depend largely on how informed its people are. Thinking effectively is so difficult for us to do even when we try. Our opinions have ethnic, religious, and political coloration. People can hardly see white for white and black for black. It’s so easy to be cowards but to be wise and for-sighted requires greater brain power than our kinds could afford. A wise man’s conscience cannot be bought but a fool’s mind worth less than a penny. If u want a better nigeria then vote gej and Co out of office come 2015. This man will turn our land to killing fields. He’s not worth our blood. I’m from the south south but I’m not a bigot. The nigerian dream is close to its demise. We must save it. Nigeria has no spending plan, no long term development plan, extensive and widespread looting of the treasury, band aid economic measures, religionisation of a supposedly secular state, decayed infrastructure, outdated university curricular and teaching methods. Our present system of education cannot sustain the continuous existence of the nigerian state as mediocrity across board can only hasten our total collapse and annihilation…….
