The Super Falcons of Nigeria were yesterday crowned the champions of Africa for the 9th time after they defeated South Africa 4-3 on penalties after they ended the match goalless in normal time.
The falcons who were defending their title were the better side during the contest and should have been in front in the second half after they were awarded a penalty but Asisat Oshoala failed to convert.
With the win yesterday, they are now the first team to win the title three time consecutively and Nigerians have as a result of this been on social media reacting.
What Nigerians are saying:
We are lucky
