The young Lionesses were unable to stop their West African rivals from reclaiming the continental crown.

The Nigeria U20 women's team emerged as the champions of the 2019 African Games after they beat Cameroon 3-2 on penalties in Rabat on Thursday.

The teams had played out a barren draw after extra-time before the Falconets won the ensuing penalty kicks at Boubker Aamar Stadium.

In the semi-final on Monday, Christopher Danjuma's side cruised past Algeria 3-0, while Cameroon required extra-time to subdue hosts Morroco 3-1 on the same day.

Both teams had a fair share of dominance throughout the encounter as the West Africans held sway in the first half, while the Central Africans were outrightly better in the second half.

Favourites Nigeria made a bright start as the Monday Gift led attack caused the Cameroonians a lot of trouble but could not find a breakthrough in the opening 45 minutes.

With Gift replaced 10 minutes after the restart, Charles Kamdem's side forced goalkeeper Chaimaka Nnadozie to make breathtaking saves but couldn't get the breakthrough.

With no goal in regulation time, both sides failed to take their chances in extra time too, dragging the tie into a penalty shootout.

The Falconets bounced back from two misses in three attempts thanks to three consecutive saves from young sensation Nnadozie to claim a 3-2 win.

The win means Nigeria have won the African Games for the first time since 2007 in Algiers and their third crown in five attempts.

Weldone ladies. You have done us proud again. Having the backs of the Eagles by defeating Algeria in the semis. Kudos to the keeper for singlehandedly dragging the team to glory. Y'all are virtuos women.

Maybe a female president is what we need to restore Nigeria back to her glory days.
