Windhoek - Super Falcons continued their unbeaten run at the 2014 African Women’s Championship with a 2-0 victory over host Namibia in their final group game on Friday.
The Nigerian side had beaten Ivory Coast and Zambia in their first two games.
Namibia, who got off to a bright start, had a good chance in the 12th minute but goalkeeper Ibubeleye Whyte, who was tested for the better side of the game so far, came to the rescue.
Nigeria also caused some worries to the defense of Namibia, but for poor finishing from Francesca Ordega and Esther Sunday, as well as good goalkeeping from Eixas.

As the game became more interesting, Super Falcons almost conceded in the 34th minute when Coleman contested with Whyte in the air, off a freekick, but for the ball to go over the bar.
Three minutes later, Nigeria broke the deadlock when Gloria Ofoegbu took a deadly freekick at the edge of the danger area to beat goalkeeper Eixas.
Eixas would flop worse just one minute later, and it was Ordega who dribbled the on-rushing keeper to slot the ball into an empty net, and bring the first half to an end with Nigeria leading at 2-0.
The second half resumed on a balanced note, as both sides tried to size each other.
Namibia was close to cancel their deficit in the 66th minute when Coleman pulled a freekick that met the head of Nguda, but the ball went just by the goal post to the disappointment of the host.Both teams kept the heat on, but the score was to remain unchanged despite the four minutes added time.
