Super Falcons next match: Nigeria women’s team fixtures and results 2024

Are you looking for info on the Super Falcons next match or some of the recent fixtures of the team, we've got you covered in this article.

Nigeria’s women’s national team, the Super Falcons, enjoyed an eventful year in 2023 but are expected to be busier in what will be a very packed 2024.

Randy Waldrum's side made a huge impression in the minds of many with their excellent performance at last year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, where they reached the round of 16.

After that, the team regrouped for the qualifiers for the 2024 Women's Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) and the Paris Olympic Games, having been tasked with some tricky fixtures.

After having a walkover in their qualifying tie against Sao Tome and Principe, the Super Falcons overcame Cape Verde 7-1 on aggregate to book their place at the WAFCON, which will be hosted by Morocco in August 2024.

Nigeria then shifted focus to the Olympic Games qualifiers where they defeated Ethiopia and Cameroon's Indomitable Lionesses en route to the final qualifying round.

Waldrum and his troops put up a gallant performance in the first leg against Banyana Banyana in Abuja, where they prevailed by a lone goal.

Super Falcons next match – latest news

Super Falcons coach Waldrum recently renewed his contract and is already aiming to qualify the team for the Olympic Games in Paris.

Although Waldrum's side held their own against Banyana Banyana in the first leg, he will have some big calls to make, especially regarding the role of the reigning CAF Women's Footballer of the Year, Asisat Oshoala.

Oshoala is no doubt a big name in the team but her performances for the national team haven't been too convincing in recent times and wasn't a starter during last year's Women's World Cup.

The Bay FC player was on the bench for Nigeria's first leg encounter with Banyana Banyana. It remains to be seen whether she will command a starting role against South Africa in the second leg.

If they emerge victorious after their tie with Banyana Banyana, the Super Falcons will book a place at the Paris Olympics later this year.
