2016 AFCON Final: Why Nigeria’s Super Falcons Emerged Champion

The Nigerian Super Falcons flied the sky of Yaounde to create the unexpected at the last minute to crush the Lionesses at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium to emerge champions of Africa for the 8th time. The presence of President Biya and wife, Chantal Biya did not in any way intimidated Desire Oparanozie, who fired the lone goal that saw the Falcons beat the Indomitable Lionesses.  Florence Omagbemi, made history to become the first individual to win the AWCON as a player and a coach.
Critics are of the opinion that Cameroon lost at the finals not because they girls were not fit but that the Gods were angry following police and Gendarme brutality in Buea and Bamenda recently. While Nigerians take home the trophy to continue battling with the economic crisis, Cameroonians were humbled out to face the social unrest.
