Super Falcons Qualify For 2018 African Women’s Cup of Nations

Since the inception of the Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) in 1991, Nigeria has won the tournament a record 10 times. Now, the country is getting another shot at the continental trophy, having qualified for the 2018 edition set to hold in Ghana.

The Super Falcons qualified on a 7-0 aggregate by beating The Gambia 1-0 in their home, and 6-0 in Lagos.

With four goals to her name, Desire Oparanozie was the star player at the second qualifying round in Lagos on Monday. Asisat Oshoala scored two more goals, ensuring The Gambia was convinced about Nigeria’s superiority.

In addition to Nigeria, the 2018 AWCON will feature Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Algeria, South Africa, Zambia, Mali and the host, Ghana. Based on past records, South Africa and Cameroon are Nigeria’s biggest opponents. So, when it comes to these teams, the Super Falcons will have their work cut out for them as they attempt to win the trophy for the eleventh time.
