The Super Falcons dominated the keenly contested encounter played at the Stade Mohamed V, Casablanca.

The West Africans will also compete at 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand following the win.


Waldrum praised his players for their performance in the game and as well as their qualification for the World Cup.

  • this coach has done well for this team especially in terms of bringing in new players who can fill in well in sensitive positions when the main players are unavailable.
    no asisat no problem. ifeoma, rasheedat are doing the deed and in a major competition too. they are in the semis and have qualified for the female world cup as well.wow

    I really gbadu that number 9 girl, ifeoma, though she lacks speed, but her ball sense is superb, she is got a good footwork and ball control, her contributions so far have been massive, with good coordination, she works hard in games. i see her everywhere in the pitch, a good game reader aswell, reminds me of bridgit prinz former german female national captain. The team should utilise more on her height via accurate crosses to opponent box, i see her scoring a header against morocco.
    Ajibade is our christiano ronaldo, i hope she continue this vibe in the worldcup, big player, big babe.

    Onome and ohale dey vess for that back oh, them be like two wives of one husband, the way them they uppress cameruon strikers, them be like their god mothers. Welldone queens, please bring it on to the worldcup, i beg una make una put us for history for worldlevel, yes oooh, Japan did it. if japan can do it, Naija girls can do it too. Oya naa.
    Ngozi and ayinde are everlygreen.
