Nigeria Vs Equatorial Guinea (Live Updates): Super Falcons gun for big win

The Super Falcons of Nigeria will be gunning for a big over Equatorial Guinea as they hope to seal their place in the semi-final of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations this evening.

With the tricky nature of Group B and the present standings, only a big win will be apt for the Super Falcons if they are to sail through to the semi-final with fewer hassles.

On paper, Nigeria should beat Equatorial Guinea to avenge the 2008 loss and be among the semi-finalists.

But the Falcons themselves have not given their fans so much hope, particularly after losing their opening fixture to South Africa.

If the determination with which the Nigerian women responded in bashing Zambia 4-0 in their last match returns, Equatorial Guinea should be getting ready for another harvest of goals having shipped in a dozen in their first two games against Zambia and South Africa.
