WAFCON 2022: Super Falcons arrive Morocco for final preparation
The Super Falcons’ contingent to the 12th Women Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco has begun camping in Rabat, an official said on Monday in Abuja.
Ademola Olajire, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) spokesperson, disclosed that the team landed in Casablanca on Monday.
“They have already moved to Morocco’s administrative capital, Rabat, where the team will camp for seven days before their opening Group C match against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana,” he said.
The match is billed for the same city of Rabat on July 4. The Falcons will also take on Botswana on July 7 and Burundi on July 10 in group phase matches.
All four semi-finalists in Morocco will qualify to represent Africa at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023.
The fifth-placed team at the WAFCON also has an opportunity to qualify for the World Cup through a Playoff Tournament scheduled for early next year.
