The 2022 Women’s African Cup of Nations will have a repeat of the Nigeria against South Africa battle.

The Super Falcons have been drawn to play Banyana Banyana, Botswana and Burundi in Group C of the 14th Women Africa Cup of Nations taking place 2nd – 23rd July in Morocco.

Nigeria and South Africa faced off in the same group at the last edition of the competition in Ghana, with the South African ladies winning by the odd goal.

Both teams met again in the final, which ended scoreless after regulation and extra time. The Super Falcons eventually triumphed 4-3 on penalties to win a record 9th title.
