12th AAG: Super Falconets Beat Cameroon  3-2 On Penalties To Clinch Gold Medal

Nigeria’s Super Falconets have won the Gold medal in the women’s football event at the ongoing 12th All Africa Games following a 3-2 penalty shootout win against Cameroon on Thursday night at the Boubker Aamar Stadium, reports Completesports.com.

It was the first time Nigeria claimed the ultimate prize in the African Games since the 2007 edition in Algiers. The team have also now won Gold medal thrice in five attempts.

Both teams battled to a 0-0 draw after 120 minutes of energy sapping football action.

The Super Falconets dominated play in the first half, while the Cameroonians held sway after the break.

In the shootout, Falconets bounced back from two misses in three attempts thanks to three consecutive saves made by young goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie to secure a 3-2 win.

Nigeria’s team in the men’s football event the Flying Eagles, will take on Burkina Faso in the final on Friday.
