Nigeria’s previous gold medal in women football at the African Games was in 2003 and 2007. While Cameroon won once in 2011 in Maputo, Mozambique.

Nigeria and Cameroon were in the same group during the group stage and both sides settled for a 1-1 then.

The tournament’s final clash between the two neighbouring countries was another feisty tie as both teams battled each other for 120 minutes. But there was no goal to separate both sides.
