Nigeria’s Super Falcons have made another record in the final round of qualifiers for the women’s football event at the 2024 Olympics by defeating Cameroon 1-0 on aggregate in the third round of qualifiers for the quadrennial games. The Falcons played a goalless draw at the Stade de la Réunification, Douala, on Friday that gave them an edge against the Cameroonians at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja on Monday. 

An early goal from Esther Okoronkwo made the deciding factor in a closely contested match. 

Though the Cameroonians tried hard, creating opportunities to tie the game and win it on the road, but Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnadozie made some crucial stops that breaks the camel back. 

Accordingly, the Super Falcons are set for a show down on either Tanzania or South Africa in the final round of qualifiers to emerge the giant. 

Just two teams from Africa will participate in the 2024 Olympics. 

The 2024 Olympics is slated to be held in Paris, France, from July 26 to August 11, 2024.
