She had her head bowed after the disappointing loss to South Africa last Sunday in the opening game of the Women's Africa Cup of Nations, but it was a different scene on Wednesday for Super Falcons star Francisca Ordega.

Ordega had a double celebration on Wednesday as she was happy that Super Falcons secured a crucial win over Zambia and the enterprising forward was equally voted Woman-Of-the-match.

She wrote on her twitter handle: My my my, super excited for the award(woman of the match)..but I’m happier for the 3points..on to next????my teammates are the real MVP

A one goal defeat in their opening match against South Africa on Sunday had marooned the champions in third place on the Group B table, following Zambia’s 5-0 win over two–time champions, Equatorial Guinea.

But the Zambians could not hold a candle to the Falcons when the die was cast on Wednesday evening.

The scoreline was only two goals short of the 6-0 hiding the Zambians received from the Nigerians in Namibia four years ago, but that would not have been the case had reigning African Woman Player of the Year, Asisat Oshoala not, inexplicably, failed to score several opportunities that came her way.
