Super Falcons depart Yaounde after winning African Women’s Cup of Nations title

Nigeria senior women team on Saturday night flew out of Yaounde after winning the 2016 African Women’s Cup of Nations title following a 1-0 final victory over Cameroon.
Florence Omagbemi’s side left the Cameroon’s capital city for Nigeria after they defeated the Indomitable Lionesses to claim an eighth African title.
Florence Omagbemi’s ladies ended their two-week journey by pipping the hosts at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium to claim their record eighth title and first ever continental crown in central Africa.
The hasty departure of the Super Falcons drew several criticisms seeing various degrees of injury to at least five players after the all-physical clash with the Indomitable Lionesses.
Few hours after their hard fought title victory, the Super Falcons began their journey back home as they were hurried out of their lodge at the Djeuja Palace Hotel by 11pm local time.
After about three hours of wait, they made a 45 minutes flight to Douala at 2am – wee hours of Sunday morning before connecting to Lagos after a five hours stop-over.
They later head out to Lagos at 8:30am and expected to land in Nigeria’s commercial city about 10:30am to a rousing reception at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport.
