We've arrived safely in Casablanca in the build up to our #WAFCON2022 quarterfinal showdown with Cameroon on Thursday, July 14. On arrival, we were immediately lodged at Novotel Hotel in Mohammedia #SoarSuperFalcons #GoingFor10 #NGABUR #WeCountOnYou pic.twitter.com/vwQKprGjPA
That is the same stadium where Cameroon played all their three group games, picking a win and two draws to finish second in Group B behind Zambia.
The Indomitable Lioness forced Zambia to a stalemate on matchday one and followed it with a 1-1 draw against Togo.
Matchday three brought success for Cameroon as they forced a 2-0 defeat down the throat of Tunisia.
The Super Falcons, however, faced their three group opponents at the Stade Prince Moulay EL Hassan in Rabat. The defending champions lost their opening match 2-1 to South Africa’s Banyana Banyana.
But the coach Randy Waldrum ladies bounced back beautifully with wins over Botswana (2-0) and Burundi (4-0) to finish as Group C runners-up.
The team will be lodged at the Novotel Hotel in Mohammedia ahead of the face-off against Cameroon.
The Super Falcons are chasing a tenth continental crown, having won the WAFCON trophy a record nine times.
The Nigerians have the most potent attack at the championship, with seven goals from their first three matches.
