Despite an underwhelming performance, Nigerians were full of praise for the Super Falcons following their ninth Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) triumph on Saturday.
The Falcons defeated South Africa 4-3 on penalties to clinch a record ninth continental accolade.
Here’s a peek at what Nigerians had to say on Twitter.

Naija babes won’t tweet about the Super Falcon’s AWCON win later they will start asking why male sports are superior to female sports.
