    Congratulations to Equatorial Guinez which proves that its presence at last WC was not pure chance.

    Tough score for South Africa, but the fact to have reached the Final is a mark of their improvement, seen at the Olympics.

    And here is Cameroon now, a promise for the future, no doubt. Nigeria, the over-dominating nation in African WF is still there. But no longer alone !

    Equatorial Guinea wins the African Women Championship 2012 

     

    Equatorial Guinea  popularly known as Nzalang Nacional (nation’s light) are new Africa football queens. Hosts has lifted African Women Championships (AWC) title after defeating South Africa 4-0 in a final match of the 8th edition played on Sunday at Malabo Stadium.
    Playing before The Republic President Teodoro Obiang Mbasogo who was the chief guest, Equatorial Guinea players started the match aggressively with several dangerous moves against the opponent, but South Africa defence under goalie Thokozile Mndaweni was smart enough to thwart all attempts from the hosts.
    However, Equatorial Guinea’s efforts pay dividends two minutes to halftime when their striker Gloria Chinasa scored through a header following a corner taken by Genoveva Anonman.
    Despite being behind, South African nick named Banyana Banyana started second half with the same rhythm, putting the ball down with one-two passes in the midfield searching for an equaliser. In the 52nd minute their tall striker Andisiwe Mgcoyi penetrated Equatorial Guinea defence after receiving a pass from Sister Amanda but she shot wide.
    South Africa seems to lose concentration of the game as minutes ticked away. Thus, allowed Equatorial Guinea to score three quick goals within five minutes. Substitute Adriana Costa who came in for Jade Boho in the 66th minute scored second goal a minute later after connecting home Genoveva Anonman’s corner kick.
    Anonman who emerged top scorer of the tournament with six goals put Equatorial Guinea victory beyond reasonable doubt when she scored third goal in the 70th minute. A minute later, Gloria Chinasa made it 4-0 after finishing well following a right flank cross by Adriana Costa.
    In a playoff match at the same venue, Cameroon walked away with bronze medal after a 1-0 victory against Nigeria (Super Falcons). Striker Deborah Enganamouit scored the only goal in the 26th minute with a powerfully packed shot inside 18-metre box that goalie Tochukwu Oluehi could not manage to stop .
