What Super Falcons need against South Africa to seal Olympics slot

Nigeria senior Women’s team, Super Falcons, head to South Africa for the return leg of the CAF Women’s Olympics qualifiers with a 1-0 goal advantage.

In the first meeting between the two fierce rivals on Friday, Rasheedat Ajibade’s first half goal from the spot was the difference in Abuja.

Waldrum’s side now need to avoid defeat in Pretoria, guaranting them automatic qualification.

In circumstances where the aggregate is level, the match extends to extra time and possibly penalties.

The away goals rule in Olympics qualifiers doesn’t count, which leaves a lot at stake in the final game.

Last participated at the Olympic games in 2008, Tuesday’s duel against the hosts at Loftus Versfeld stadium means a lot to the girls.
