WAFCON 2022: Super Falcons pick up 2023 World Cup ticket with a defeat of Cameroon and a semi-finals berth

(NNP) Unlike the uninspired Super Eagles, the Super Falcons Thursday qualified for the 2023 World Cup jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand with a defeat of Cameroon in the quarter-finals in the ongoing Women’s African Cup of Nations championship in Morocco. The Falcons who have clinched a semi-finals berth, have also picked up one of four World Cup tickets reserved for the four semi-finalists. After a scoreless first half, Spain-based Rasheedat Ajibade opened the scoring in the 54th minute with a smooth header behind a Cameroonian defender after a perfect cross from American-born Gotham FC (New York) forward, 28-year-old Ifeoma Onumunu. The match ended on that score line after a fierce effort from the Cameroonians that proved barren. The Falcons will be play host Morocco in the semi-finals on July 18 in Rabat. The Moroccans made history with a first-time semi-finals berth and picking up one of five tickets for the 2023 World Cup.
