Nigeria yesterday defeated Cameroon 2-0 to win the African Women’s Championship in Windhoek, Namibia. Nigeria dominated the first 12 minutes until Desire Oparanozie put the Super Falcons in front with a well taken free kick.

Asisat Oshoala doubled Nigeria’s lead two minutes from the end of the exciting  first half.

Cameroon coach Enoh Ngatchu said reaching the World Cup for the first time in a decade can help transform the game in his country.

Ngatchu told BBC Sport: “We have more girls playing soccer, we are better organised – with this qualification, many things will change.”

Nigeria and Cameroon had already qualified for next year’s World Cup in Canada by reaching the final.

They will be joined there by Ivory Coast who beat South Africa 1-0 in the bronze medal match on Saturday.

In an even contest, also played in Windhoek, Rebecca Ida scored the winning goal six minutes from full time.

She pounced on a loose ball in the Banyana Banyana box from a corner kick, and slotted the ball home.

Indomitable Lion’s Midfielder, Stephane Mbia Etoundi, is the first victim to have a bite of the wrath of angry fans among the 23 players who represented Cameroon in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil after fans pound on him and vandalised his car.

Hours after the Lions returned from Brazil, Mbia was attacked in the Score Shopping Mall at the Yaounde Central Market on Wednesday, June 25.

According to reports Mbia, who had purchased a few items from the mall and was about to drive off, was suddenly surrounded by angry looking fans, who were not happy that Mbia was squandering the whooping FCFA 60 million given to each player in prelude to the World Cup after a shameful result. As a result of this, angry fans pounced on him, tore his clothes, vandalised his car.He was safe by the timely intervention of the forces of law and order just when fans were about to squeeze life out of him.

However, some faction of the fans were trying to protect Mbia saying that he was only player in the team who put up an perfect performance in the team and should should be spared.

Moukandjo was lucky to have narrowly escaped as he passed two hours after the irate fans have scattered.

Others suggested that lions’ captain Samuel Eto’o should be the one to go under such a treatment since he was the one that led the team to demand for bonus increase.

Meanwhile,   some of the players had envisaged such a reception from the population and had to take their various flights to their respective clubs in Europe, instead of coming back home. This explains the reason why out of 23 players who made the trip to Brazil, only 12 players returned to Cameroon.
