Exclusive: 2022 WAFCON: Falcons Will Beat Cameroon, Book World Cup Ticket -Rufai

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Peter Rufai believes the Super Falcons will overcome Cameroon and book a place at the Women’s FIFA World Cup.


The Nigerian side will take on the Indomitable Lioness in today’s quarter final clash at the ongoing 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.



However, in a chat with Completesports.com, Rufai stated that the team has what it takes to overpower their Cameroonian counterpart for a place in the semi final.

“I have never doubted the ability of the Super Falcons despite the fact that the team lost its opening game 2-1 to South Africa.


“There is a lot at stake and I know the Super Falcons will give it their best to beat Cameroon and qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

“I expect a tough game but Nigeria will be victorious today.”

      Oparanozie wasn’t invited due to some logistic issues from her base,it’s got nothing to do with our administrators or the gaffer

    With THEIR big mouths, THEY made EGUAVEON feel like HE had the BEST TEAM in the WORLD..

    But what HAPPENED with US against the WORST GHANA TEAM EVER?

    I guess YOU already know the ANSWER..


    • As bad as Eguavoen was tactically, he still did not lose against Ghana. He just didn’t qualify Nigeria on technical grounds – away goals rule. So, don’t make it look like the eagles were that bad. In derby matches anything can always happen. Was it painful that we didn’t qualify for the world cup? Yes. But was it a new thing? No.

      I don’t know why it is difficult for we Nigerians to move beyond “not going to the world cup.” Italy is not going to the world cup. They still retained the coach that failed in that assignment. Nigeria on the other hand replaced her coach. But we are still dwelling on the inability to qualify for the world cup. How do we move forward under this circumstance.

      By the way, this is female football! As far as this tournament is concerned, I agree that Nigeria is still the team to beat. Other nations know this. Do you think the Cameroun you have watched in this tournament can beat Nigeria? Well, lets talk after the match. The only real team in this tournament is Morocco and not even the South Africans. Now if you cut out the wingers of the Moroccans, you’ll see that they are a very vulnerable team. Also, in terms of experience, the Moroccans can’t match this current super falcons team. That is a fact.

      If not for the coach that decided that he will use the old and unfit players in the team and played most of them out of position, do you think South Africa would have been able to beat Nigeria? Like I said, lets talk after the match today.

        All I want you yo know is GENERAL ROAH would not have allowed a TUNISIA B TEAM with a COACH on INDUSTRIAL TRAINING (IT) to BEAT us.. HE would have WON us our 4th AFCON and still got US through to the WC.

    There is enough reason to be optimistic and confident on the Super Falcons. The Falcons has defeated the Cameroons 14 times at this level while Cameroons have only won them once. By FIFA ranking, the Super Falcons are 39th in the world while Cameroons are 54th in the world. By current Group stage performance, the Super Falcons made 6points, winning 2 matches with a +5 goal difference. While the lioness of Cameroon managed 5 point, wining only 1 match and 2 draws with a +2 goal difference.

    Lets look at the facts and stop been unnecessarily worried, we are still the team to beat in this WAFCON, the first match was simply a wake up call to the Falcons and the Good news is that they have woken up and not even Cameroon, Morocco, Zambia nor South Africa can overpower this current Super Falcons.

    Super falcons go and show them that we no be mate. We are already proud of your
    My advice to our Fans is Always remember Super Falcons is not Super Eagles and Men soccer is not Women Soccer.

    My ADVICE to you and others who are OVER OPTIMISTIC is always REMEMBER that the CAMEROONIANS are not BURUNDI..

      I don’t speak because others talk. South African’s TV analysts talk down on Super Falcons since they started this tournament, but to the Glory of God. Nigeria is winning. Today will not and can not be exception. Let’s watch the match and Glorify God. God Bless Super Falcons, God bless Nigeria.

    Have nothing to worry about this Cameroonian girls, super falcons knows how to beat them when it matters must.

    Check record.
    Come on girls
    We are behind you

    • Greenturf 1 month ago

      Record means nothing and it’s there to be broken.
      Our girls shouldn’t dwell in that past rather should put in a good shift,in football you also need a bit of luck sometimes to scrap through.
