Nigeria has won the AWC title seven out of the entire nine edition of the tournament as Equatorial Guinea are the only other winners, in 2008 and 2012, but failed to qualify for 2014 tournament.

By reaching the AWC finals, Nigeria and Cameroon had already qualified for 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals which is scheduled to hold in Canada as they will be joined by Cote d’Ivoire who had also defeated South Africa 1-0 in the third-place match.

The Falcons has enjoyed an all-encompassing victory from the beginning of the tournament which kicked off on Saturday, 11 October, 2014.
