Last night, the Falcons cruised to the semi-final stage of the AWCON and the FIFA World Cup after their narrow victory over the Indomitable Lioness of Cameroon during their quarter-finals game. The Falcons who didn’t start well, losing the first game to South Africa have now had three wins on a streak against Botswana, Burundi, and Cameroon to reach this feat.
The Falcons oversaw the encounter, controlling most of the possession in both halves. Rasheedat Ajibade, the Atlético Madrid forward, separated both teams at full time. She received the man of the match award last night and has now scored three goals in the tournament.
The Falcons will now play host nation Morocco on Monday to fight for their 10th triumph in history. While South Africa which had a narrow win as well will battle with the Zambians.
PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar said: “Congratulations to Nigeria’s Female Football team, the Super Falcons, for qualifying for the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand and their qualification for the semifinals of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco. —AA”
