The final of the 2018 African Women Nations Cup (AWCON) is upon us with old foes Super Falcons of Nigeria will be taking on the Bayana Bayana of South Africa in Accra.
South Africa have never won the AWCON and face the eight-time champions Nigeria on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Nigeria vs South Africa
Super Falcons did not have it all easy in the semi-finals though. Cameroon held them to a goalless draw after extra time. It was from the penalty kicks where the Nigerians earned a 4-2 win to set up a rematch with South Africa on Saturday.
Nigeria have never lost in an AWCON final, so if there’s any side capable of pulling through, it’s the ladies in green, because they’ve done it time and time again.
They defeated Banyana in the 1995 and 2000 finals, and winning the tournament has certainly become the team’s trademark.
