Oshoala scores a brace as Nigeria qualifies for AWC finals


Nigeria’s Super Falcons have sealed a place in final of the AWC as well as the 2015 Fifa Women’s World Cup in Canada after a hard fought win over arch rivals Banyana Banyana

Nigeria defeated South Africa 2-1 in the first semi-final of the 9th African Women Championship game played at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek, Namibia.

A first half brace from youth prodigy Asisat Oshoala blew away the Banyana Banyana who tried to launch a comeback in the second half courtesy of a controversial strike from midfielder Refiloe Jane.

With this win, Nigeria will now face the winner of the other semi-final match between Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the competition.
