Super Falcons match today vs Cameroon

The Super Falcons, Africa's top-ranked team, are still riding high after their impressive performance at the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Despite exiting the tournament in the round of 16, Nigeria's undefeated run has left a lasting impression.

However, memories of Cameroon halting their Olympic dreams in 2012 add extra motivation for this Nigerian side. On the other hand, the Indomitable Lionesses are eager to avenge past defeats and make their mark.

Having held Nigeria to a goalless draw in the first leg, Cameroon are determined to prove themselves once again but will have to do it the hard way by beating the Super Falcons away from home. It's going to be yet another close game, although Nigeria will start as slight favourites.

Coach Randy Waldrum has assembled a formidable squad, including experienced defenders like Ashley Plumptre and talented midfielders Halimatu Ayinde, Toni Payne, and Christy Ucheibe.

Nigeria's attacking lineup, led by stars like Asisat Oshoala and Rasheedat Ajibade, poses a significant threat to Cameroon's defence.

When Nigeria faced Cameroon in the first leg in Douala, they were by far the better side and dominated the game for large spells. However, they just lacked the cutting edge, which led to the game ending without any goals.

With the second leg set to be played on home their home turf – at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja – the Super Falcons are favourites to advance to the next round of the Olympic qualifiers.

They have better players and, backed by their home fans, Nigeria have everything going their way. However, Cameroon cannot be underrated either.

The Lionesses have a history of inflicting misery on their rivals when expectations are high and they will certainly draw inspiration from shutting out Nigeria in the first leg four days ago.
