Nigeria’s Super Falcons will face hosts Morocco in the Semi Final of the ongoing 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.
The match will hold on Monday 18th July 2022 at 9 pm (Nigerian Time ). To reach this stage, Nigeria gathered 6 points to finish 2nd in Group C. The Super Falcons then continued their dominance over arch-rivals Cameroon with a 1-0 Quater Final win on Thursday night.
The Atlas Lionesses of Morocco on their part finished top of Group A with three wins from three games before a hard-fought 2-1 Quater Final victory over Botswana on Wednesday night to reach the last four.
On paper, 9 times Women’s Africa Cup of Nations winners Nigeria will be favorites to emerge victorious in the Semi Final but Morocco have proven a worthy host who have done enough to earn a first-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup and could disrupt Nigeria’s hopes of a title defense in Morocco.
South Africa will face Zambia in the other Semi-Final. Both teams are unbeaten in the competition to this stage and will kickstart Semi Final hostilities by 6 pm on Monday 18th July 2022.
All Four Semi-finalists will represent Africa at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
