Super Falcons Qualify for Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Nigeria’s Super Falcons played out a goalless draw with South Africa’s Banyana Banyana in Pretoria on Tuesday evening to qualify for the women’s football event of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games in the summer. 

It is Nigeria’s first qualification since 2008 at the Beijing Games. 

The 1-0 slim edge gained by the nine-time African champions when they hosted the South Africans in Abuja last Friday was enough to see Falcons through to the Games. 

Rasheedat Ajibade of Atletico Madrid femeni scored that goal from the penalty spot to now qualify Nigeria on 1-0 aggregate to Paris.
