    Default Nigeria versus Equatorial Guinea Final


    you be the judge,man or woman ?

    Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea booked their places in the final of the 2010 African Women's Championship on Thursday, and in doing so will represent the continent at the FIFA Women's World Cup next year.

    Nigeria thrashed Cameroon 5-1 in the first game of the day, while defending champions Equatorial Guinea beat hosts South African 3-1 after extra-time.

    But controversy continues to dog the Guinea side.

    After an earlier protest from Cameroon that they were fielding ineligible players, something CAF dismissed “until a full investigation could be launched”, Ghana have now stated that the Guinea side includes men!

    Two Black Queens players, Diana Ankomah and captain Florence Okoe, claim Equatorial Guinea used three men during their final Group B game on Monday which Ghana lost 3-1 to exit the competition.

    Cameroon has filed an official complaint against Equatorial Guinea for similar gender claims.

    CAF is refusing to comment on the issue as this is the second tournament in a row that the Guineans have been accused of gender cheating.

    Salimata Simpore, Bilguisa Simpore and team captain Genoveva Ayonmang were in 2008 suspected to be boys.

    Black Queens' team captain Florence Okoe said no one can make her yield in her belief that Salimata Simpore was "a boy playing in a girls game”.

    "It is not as if we are throwing sour grapes, just because we have lost. Rather, this is the fact and it is up to the organisers to do something about this. It is not good for African women football," she said.

    Diana Ankomah, says despite their disappointing finish, they were only feeling unhappy with the gender of the opposition.

    Ankomah re-echoed the claim that at least two of Equatorial Guinea's players were not girls.

    "To lose a football game is not something we don't know how to take, that is now normal for us as footballers,” Diana Ankomah told NAN.

    "But losing to unequal opposition like in this case of Equatorial Guinea is painful. You only need to have physical contact with them to know this, and we can tell from what happened most times during the match," she said.

    Meanwhile, the brilliant Perpetua Nkwocha netted a second hat-trick of the tournament to lead Nigeria to a 5-1 win over Cameroon.

    The other goals came from Helen Ukaonu and Ugochi Oparanozie with Jeannette Ngock getting a late consolation for Cameroon.

    In the later game, the controversial Simpore scored twice in injury-time and an own goal from Simphiwe Dludlu sealed Banyana's fate against Equatorial Guinea.

    Super Falcons are African champions... again

    Nigeria’s Super Falcons on Sunday defeated defending champions Equatorial Guinea 4-2 to win the 7th African Women’s Championship in South Africa.

    It was the 6th time Nigeria was emerging champions of Africa and the win served as sweet revenge for the Super Falcons who lost out at the semi final stage of the 2008 tournament to the Equatorial Guineans.

    Perpetua Nkwocha shot Nigeria into the lead in the first half but it wasn’t until the second half that the game came alive with both sides thrilling spectators to an incredible display of attacking football with five goals arriving in the final half-hour of the game, including two own goals by the Equatorial Guineans.

    The "Indomitable Lionesses" of Cameroon failed to live up to their nickname as a rampant Banyana Banyana side scored a convincing 2-0 victory to claim a third place in their playoff match of the African Women’s Championship in Daveyton on Sunday.

    Nigeria officially demand gender test of Equatorial Guinea Players.


    The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have formally demanded a gender test be conducted on Equatorial Guinea star striker Salimata Simpore ahead of Sunday’s African Women’s Championship final in Johannesburg, South Africa.

    “We have officially complained to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) about Salimata, the Equatorial Guinea no.8. We are challenging the gender of the player and want CAF to do a full test on the player to establish her gender,” said top NFF official, Mohammed Sanusi.

    Both Ghana and Cameroon have also complained about the gender of the manly-looking Salimata.

    The gender of several players of defending champions Equatorial Guinea including skipper Genoveva Ayonmang, who was top scorer at the 2008 AWC, has continued to be a big talking point since the last tournament hosted and won by the oil-rich islanders.

    However, Super Falcons assistant coach, Ann Chiejene, has insisted that the controversial Simpore will not stop Nigeria from reclaiming the trophy they lost two years ago.

    “We have players in our team who will stop her,” said the former international goalkeeper.

    Nigeria's Super Falcons $10,000+ richer.

    Nigeria's Super Falcons will be smiling all the way to the bank, if they reclaim the African Women’s Championship on Sunday in Johannesburg, officials have announced.

    The country’s sports minister, Ibrahim Bio, disclosed the ministry will give the Falcons a special cash gift of $10,000 if they dethrone Equatorial Guinea on Sunday to emerge as the best women’s team on the continent.

    An impressed Bio also said the Falcons will get $1,000 if they do not let in a goal against the team who pipped them 1-0 in the semi-finals of the AWC in Malabo two years ago.
    The team will also be paid $200 for each goal they score in the final.

    Bio has already given the team $2,000 from his pocket, while president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Aminu Maigari, doled out $10,000 from the association after the team reached the tournament final and qualified to represent Africa at next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany.

    Plans have already been concluded to host the Falcons to a special reception if they win the Africa Women’s Championship.

    “We have been talking with the National Sports Commission on according a befitting reception to the Super Falcons if they eventually bring back the Africa Women’s Championship we lost two years ago to this year’s finalists, Equatorial Guinea,” NFF deputy secretary general, Emmanuel Ikpeme, said.
