South Africa Stun Nigeria in AWCON Opener

South Africa Stun Nigeria in AWCON Opener

South Africa got their second win ever against Nigeria in the CAF Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Sunday’s 1-0 win at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

An 85th minute stunner by second-half Thembi Kgatlana punished a sleepy Falcons defence as she volleyed a shot past Tochukwu Oluehi.

 


The slim victory will see Banyana Banyana pick three points and a win in their next Group B match guarantees their qualification to the semi-final.

 

Meanwhile, it was three editions ago when Banyana got their first win over the Falcons. Janine Van Wyk scored the winner in a semi-final clash.
