Yesterday evening, defending champions and Nigeria’s Super Falcons lost 0-1 to rivals South Africa in their opening match at the 11th Women’s Africa Cup of Nations at Cape Coast in Ghana.

Even with the superiority in experience of the Nigerian side, they failed to translate that into dominance as the South Africans gave them no breathing space though standing up to them and even keeping them on the back foot several times.

The Banyana Banyana however found the breakthrough in the 85th minute through Thembi Kgatlana. The Super Falcons next take on Zambia in their second Group B encounter on Wednesday at the Cape Coast Stadium
