Rasheedat Ajibade Fires Super Falcons to WAFCON 2024

Nigeria’s Super Falcons booked their passage to the 2024

Women’s Africa Cup of Nations last night with aggregate 7-1 defeat of Cape Verde this evening. 

A late winner by on field Captain, Rasheedat Ajibade, gave the nine-time African champions a 2-1 victory over the Atlantic ocean island nation.

The hosts started the game like a house on fire at the Santiago-Estádio Nacional Cabo Verde in Praia, raiding the Super Falcons’ goal area, and their quick-off-the-blocks approach paid off when Ivania Tavares Moreira got the ball past goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie for a goal in the 9th minute.

But super sub, Esther Okoronkwo canceled out the advantage before Ajibade’s winning strike. 

Earlier last Thursday in Abuja, the Nigerian ladies defeated Cape Verde 5-0 to make this second leg of the final qualifying match a done deal for Falcons who will be gunning for their 10th African honour in Morocco next year.
