The Super Falcons have won the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon, marking a historic 10th title in the tournament.
The 40,000 capacity Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium was at its full capacity, with Cameroon president Paul Biya present to spur on the Lionesses.
Nigeria had played Cameroon in the final of the last edition, with Nigeria winning 2-0 in Namibia.
The match between the Falcons and the hosts this time was a tough tense affair, but semi-final hero Desire Oparanozie once again proved to be invaluable as she snagged a winning goal with only 6 minutes to go. She was set on goal by a through pass from Asisat Oshoala, and put the ball in the back of the net.
The Super Falcons have an unparalled dominance in the competition, and have won all but two of the competition’s 12 editions.
Ghana, who lost to Cameroon in the semi-final, beat South Africa 1-0 in the third place match.
