The occasion itself was like a carnival with the stadium being packed hours before the game itself began.The President of the country,Paul Biya was there to see the Lionesses do the country proud and win it for the first time.But the Falcons had another idea in mind.
They broke the hearts of the whole nation by stealing the cup in front of their teeming supporters.
In the first half,the hosts had the better performance and should have gone ahead,but failed to take their chances.
But in the second half,the defending champions were a lot more composed and began to silence the home crowd.
Just when we thought things could be going into extra time,that lady again Desire Oparanozie,who was the match winner in the last game against South Africa,hit the winner in the 84th minute to silence the 40,000 strong crowd and you could almost hear a pin drop.
Hail the queens and long live the queens,there are celebrations all over the streets of Lagos,Abuja,Port harcourt and in all parts of Naija today!
