Cameroon coach Enow Ngachu has written off the chances of Nigeria winning the 2016 African Women’s Cup of Nations at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde on Saturday.
Hosts Indomitable Lionesses defeated Ghana’s Black Queens 1-0 in the first semifinal of the tournament in Yaounde on Tuesday to set up a final showdown with the Super Falcons, who also beat South Africa’s Banyana Banyana 1-0 in the second semifinal in Limbe on the same day.
Seven-time African champions Nigeria have won the tournament twice at Cameroon’s expense.
The Falcons humiliated the Lionesses 5-0 to claim their fourth title in the final of the championship hosted by South Africa in 2004. Nigeria returned 10 years later to win their seventh title after beating their bitter rivals 2-0 in the Namibia 2014 final at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek.
France-based striker Desire Oparanozie and Arsenal Ladies forward Asisat Oshoala scored a goal apiece to hand Nigeria the title.
