On Sunday, the Super Falcons of Nigeria will leave the nation for South Africa to play Banyana Banyana, their bitter opponents from the 2024 Paris Olympic Women’s Football Tournament, in the rematch.
After a razor-thin 1-0 lead in the first leg, Randy Waldrum’s squad will depart Lagos for Pretoria on Tuesday for the second game, where everything is on the line.

At Friday night’s match at the MKO Abiola National Stadium Abuja, nine-time African champions Nigeria and reigning champions South Africa were separated by a penalty kick that captain Rasheedat Ajibade skillfully converted in the 42nd minute.

Ajibade, who is based in Spain, made no mistake as he headed the ball past Kaylin Swart minutes after the Super Falcons rushed forward again, this time after Chinwendu Ihezuo was brought down in the box.

The pace of returning forward Ihezuo caused problems for the Banyana on multiple occasions, but Nigeria were unable to capitalize on dead-ball situations either before or after Ajibade’s goal.
