PARIS 2024 QUALIFIERS: THE FINAL STRETCH TO THE GLOBAL SHOWPIECE

South Africa – Nigeria: Advantage Super Falcons

A fixture that has grown into becoming an all-time African women’s football classic is on the cards yet again as South Africa prepares to welcome Nigeria to Pretoria for the return leg following a 1-0 loss to the Super Falcons in Abuja last week.

The Super Falcons are eyeing a fourth Olympics qualification and will be banking on Randy Waldrum’s tactics to mastermind a good result away from home against the wounded African champions who are gunning for their second Olympics appearance since 2016.

Morocco – Zambia: The Atlas Lionesses are in the driving seat

Morocco’s women’s national team made their TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations debut in 2022, participated in their first ever FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023 and are now on the verge of qualifying for the Olympics for the first time in their history.

A 2-1 win in Ndola has put the North Africans in the driving seat as they prepare to welcome the Copper Queens to Rabat where a single goal from the star-studded Zambia squad could turn the match on its head.

Morocco may be in the driving seat, but it will take a lot to keep the Zambians from making their consecutive Olympics qualification, despite being away from home.
