Nigeria: S-H-A-M-E Falcons Crash Again!

Nigeria lost the chance to salvage some lost pride after they lost third place at the African Women's championship to Cameroon on Sunday.

The sorry Falcons fell 1-0 to a 31st minute strike by Gaelle Enganamouit to finish their worst-ever AWC in fourth place. The Lionesses outplayed six-time champions Nigeria to avenge a 2-1 defeat in the group stage of the tournament.

Cameroon also eliminated Nigeria from the 2012 London Olympics qualifiers. The Falcons are due back in the country on Sunday with the future of coach Kadiri Ikhana very uncertain.
