REVEALED! Nigeria Super Falcons Team News Ahead Of Cameroon Quarter-final Clash... WAFCON 2022.

In order to get to the competition's final four, the defending champions Super Falcons trade tackles with their enmity-filled neighbors from West Africa.


In addition to a spot in the semifinals, Nigeria will play Cameroon in the 2022 Women's Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal match.

The Super Falcons or the Indomitable Lionesses will advance to the FIFA Women's World Cup if they win in Casablanca, Morocco, on Thursday.

The Super Falcons are currently the tournament's best attacking team with seven goals, despite losing their opening game 2-1 to Banyana Banyana of South Africa.

The nine-time African winners defeated Burundi 4-0 on Sunday after humiliating Botswana 2-0 on matchday two.

Similar to Nigeria, Cameroon finished second in group B. However, the Indomitable Lionesses won one and tied two games in their first three games.

The Lionesses held top-ranked Zambia to a scoreless draw, drew 1-1 with Togo, and defeated Tunisia 2-0 in their last group game.

The Cameroonians might be in the greatest position to take on their enduring foe thanks to a tight defense that allowed just one goal.

With Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala out injured, other players have stepped up to the plate, including Uchenna Kanu of Mexico, who scored twice against Burundi.

Forwards Rasheedat Ajibade and Uchenna Kanu, on two goals each, are expected to start against Cameroon, with Coach Waldrum also expected to keep faith with most of the crew that decimated Burundi in Rabat on Sunday night.

Rasheedat Ajibade, however, continues to be the Nigerian team's standout female player.

Along with defensive stalwart Osinachi Ohale, the 22-year-old Atletico Madrid attacker was included in CAF's top eleven of the group stage.

Any Super Falcons success on Thursday may depend on Ajibade's skill and vision in the closing third.

“We are ready to face Cameroon,” said Nigeria coach Randy Waldrum.

Captain Onome Ebi also insisted that the title holders are up for the challenge once again, and would be going for a tenth title;

Of course, we know what to expect. The Cameroonians also want to go to the World Cup. But we have never missed the World Cup and we won’t start now,” the veteran defender told

“Our eyes are fully focused on Australia & New Zealand, and then we can start talking about the trophy.”

The Super Falcons arrived in Morocco’s commercial and economic capital, Casablanca on Monday ahead of Thursday’s encounter.

Editor's Verdict

Both countries flew Africa’s flag at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in Canada and at the last edition in France three years ago.

Nigeria are the only one of six countries on the planet to have participated in all eight editions of the quadrennial global showpiece.

All four teams to win their quarter-final ties, would make the semi finals in Morocco, and also clinch an automatic qualifying tickets for the next year's FIFA Women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

Cameroon are now a more physical side on and off the ball. They will surely pose threat to the Super Falcons of Nigeria. 

In as much as we know that the Indomitable Lioness Cameroon are a really tough side to meet, I think the Super Falcons will beat them but by a slim margin.

The Editor predicts a likely, Nigeria 2—1 Cameroon result.
