The Nigeria national women football team, the Super Falcons, will face Cameroon in the semi-final of the women’s football event of the ongoing African Games.
The Falcons, who suffered a shock loss in their final group game on Saturday to Cote d’Ivoire, finished second in their group and will now confront Cameroon who ‘luckily’ finished tops in Group A where all three teams were tied on points.
The game will be played on Tuesday, September 15.
A 1-1 draw between Ghana and Cameroon on Sunday kept all three teams – Cameroon, Ghana and South Africa – on two points each.
However as explained in Article 12 (D) of the regulations of the competition, Cameroon has the edge having scored more goals – two against one each by Ghana and South Africa.
A drawing of lots by the ad-hoc Organizing Committee for the 11th African Games Brazzaville 2015 between Ghana and South Africa will now be held on Monday to see who will be up against Cote d’Ivoire in the other semi-final clash.
Nigeria beat Cameroon in the final of the last Africa Women Championships in Namibia in October 2014 and they will hope to do so again on Tuesday as they chase the gold medal in Congo.
