By George Aluo

The victory was a special birthday gift for NFF president Amaju Melvin Pinnick who was celebrating his 48th birthday.
Falcons had in the semi finals also won on penalties against hard fighting Cameroon.
The trio of Nigeria, South Africa and Cameroon would fly Africa’s flag in next year’s World Cup in France.
The NFF had before the final pledged a$10,000 special bonus to the Falcons.
