Super Falcons know opponents at Women AFCON

Super Falcons of Nigeria

The Super Falcons of Nigeria will play South Africa’s Banyana Banyana, Botswana and Burundi in Group C of the 12th Women Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON taking place 2nd – 23rd July in Morocco.
 
The 9-time Champions are meeting South Africa after facing off in the same group at the last edition of the competition in Ghana, with the Banyana winning by the odd goal.

Both teams again met in the final, which ended scoreless after regulation and extra time. The Super Falcons eventually triumphed 4-3 on penalties to win their 9th title.
 
Host Nation Morocco heads Group A which also has Burkina Faso, Senegal, and Uganda, while Cameroon heads Group B where they tango with Zambia, Tunisia and Togo.
 
All the four semi-finalists at the championship will represent Africa at the first-ever 32–team FIFA Women’s World Cup finals, to be hosted by New Zealand and Australia in the summer of next year.
