Stage set for Banyana v E.Guinea final



The final of the 8th African Women Championship (AWC) 2012 will be between hosts Equatorial Guinea and Banyana Banyana on Sunday at Malabo Stadium. The match will be broadcast on SSBlitz, SS9 and supersport.com

"I urge all South Africans, Gauteng residents in particular, to show their support for the girls on Sunday. As a nation we did it for Bafana Bafana during the opening of the first-ever Soccer World Cup on African soil. Let us now do it for Banyana Banyana," Gauteng Premier, Nomvula Mokonyane told Sowetan Live.

Both teams made to the final after winning their semi final matches played on Wednesday. Banyana Banyana ousted defending champion Nigeria (Super Falcons) after a first half goal that gave them a 1-0 victory on the second semi final played at Nkoantoma Stadium in Bata while Equatorial Guinea won first semi final by 2-0 against Cameroon.

In Malabo, Cameroon put a brave fight but could not resist pressure from Equatorial Guinea's striking force led by team captain Genoveva Anonman. Hosts scored their first goal just seven minute after kick off through central striker Gloria Chinasa. The scorer headed home a good cross from right flank taken by Jade Boho who received a pass from Maria Nobre.

Anonman who has five goals in the tournament so far scored the second goal for Equatorial Guinea in the 40th minute through a volley at the edge of the box that beat Cameroon's goalkeeper Flore Ngo Ndom. Referee Aissata Amegee from Togo caution two players- one from each team for foul play.

Before the final match at 5.30pm, there will be a classification match between the semi final losers at the same stadium starting at 2.30pm.
