Nigeria’s women national team, Super Falcons, defeated Cote d’Ivoire 4-2 in their opening game of the 9th African Women Championship played at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek on Saturday evening.

Edwin Okon’s ladies began their 2014 African Women Championship on a bright note as they trashed Clementine Toure’s ladies  in an exciting cracker.

A brace from Desire Oparanozie inspired Edwin Okon’s ladies to a comfortable win as they begin their quest for their seventh title as well as seek a place in the 2015 Fifa Women’s World Cup billed for Canada.
