Nigeria’s Super Falcons defeated the Three Lionesses of Cameroon to qualify for the final of the 2018 African Women Cup Of Nations (AWCON) in Ghana.
The tight and cagey match in the Ghanaian capital Accra ended goalless after 90 minutes, and the additional 30 minutes extra time produced no goals as both sides headed for the dreaded spot-kick.
While Cameroon scored their first two penalties and missed the next two, the Super Falcons scored all four penalties they played to advance to the finals where they will take on the winner of the second semi-final between South Africa and Mali.
Tuesday’s victory also guarantees the Thomas Dennerby-led side qualify for next FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
