The Super Falcons of Nigeria have emerged the champions of Africa for an amazing ninth time as they beat South Africa 4-3 on Saturday in a nervy final match at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Falcons were pushed to the wire as they had to go through the extra time and penalty kicks for the first time in their nine appearances in AWCON final.
At the end, Tockhukwu Oluehi was the hero for Nigeria saving the last kick that denied the South Africans a chance to dethrone the Falcons.
Already, the Falcons have been promised $10,000 each if they win and they would be happy heading to the female World Cup in France next year as African champions again.
