African Games: Falconets Qualify For Final Of Women’s Event


Nigeria have ended their 12-year wait for a spot in the final of the African Games after thrashing Algeria 3-0 in the semi-final in Morocco.

Nigeria won the competition twice but has failed to reach the final stage since 2007, when the women team last won in Algiers.

Two goals from Cynthia Aku and one from Zainab Olapade earned Nigeria the victory.

Christopher Danjuma’s girls will play either Cameroon or Morroco in the final.
