Cameroon concede Falcons superiority
Cameroon coach Enow Ngachu on Sunday conceded that Nigeria were superior in Saturday’s African Women’s Cup of Nations final at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde.
The Super Falcons won the encounter 1-0 courtesy of France-based forward Desire Oparanozie’s late strike to rule the elite women’s tournament for the eighth time (1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2016).
Nigeria claimed their fourth title in South Africa in 2004 after humiliating the Indomitable Lionesses 5-0 in the final – and returned 10 years later to win their seventh title after beating their bitter rivals 2-0 in the Namibia 2014 final at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek.
Ngachu, who watched helplessly from the dugout as the Falcons disgraced his team to win the title in Namibia, had vowed the Lionesses would emerge triumphant on home soil on Saturday.
