“Our dream is to qualify to the next stage of the qualifying series, then the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations and later the Women’s World Cup in 2023.
“To achieve this, we are in Nigeria to play our hearts out so that we can bring victory back home.”

This is the 18th time both countries will be squaring up in a competitive tie and the first time in Women’s AFCON qualification campaigns.

They first competitively met on February 16, 1991, in the African Women’s Championship, which also served as the qualifying tournament for the inaugural FIFA Women’s World Cup staged at the National Stadium, Lagos, when the Super Falcons won 5-1.
