Nigeria have qualified for the finals of the African Women’s Championship in Ghana after defeating Cameroon on post match penalties during the first semi final played in Accra today.
After playing a goalless game in which both sides failed to take their chances, they had to proceed to the lottery of penalties which saw the Super Falcons emerge once again victorious.
After scoring their first two penalties of the game, Cameroon missed the next two allowing Nigeria to convert and sail through to the final.
This extends Nigeria’s winning streak over Cameroon in the competition to 11 wins in twelve games. The victory also means Nigeria have qualified for the World Cup while Cameroon will have to battle for a word cup ticket with the other unfortunate semi finalist in the game between South Africa and Mali.
