Nigeria’s Women football national team booked a place in the 2018 AWCON final and also advanced to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup to be held in France next June.
The Super Falcons defeated Cameroon 4–2 on penalties where it has since been confirmed will meet South Africa’s Banyana Banyana in Saturdays’ final.
Following a worn out goalless draw after 120 minutes of football, the West African nations would be separated on penalty kicks.
Onome Ebi, Rasheedat Ajibade, Asisat Oshoala, and Ngozi Ebere scored Nigeria’s decisive penalties.
Saturday’s 2018 AWCON final gives Nigeria an opportunity to claim revenge over South Africa who beat the Super Falcons in the Group opener.
