Nigeria dethroned by Eq Guinea

* An error by Precious Dede saw Nigeria lose to Equatorial Guinea

Reigning champions Nigeria have lost 1-0 to hosts Equatorial Guinea in the semi-finals of the African Women's Championship.

The only goal of the game came in the second half after Super Falcons' goalkeeper Precious Dede failed to deal with a free kick.

It means that for the first time ever Nigeria will not be the champions of Africa.

The Super Falcons have struggled throughout the tournament only securing their place in the last four with a 2-1 win over South Africa in their final group match.

In their opening game Nigeria were held to a 1-1 draw by arch rivals Ghana and that was followed by a goalless stalemate against Tunisia.

In the day's other game South Africa's Banyana Banyana beat Cameroon 3-0 to go through to the final.

South Africa will face Equatorial Guinea in the final on Saturday, whilst Nigeria will take on Cameroon in the 3rd place play-off.
