As Nigeria’s senior women’s national team attempts to return to the women’s football event of the Olympics for the first time since 2008, their opponents from Cameroon have another thing in mind.

To end the quest and progress to the next round ahead of the former African champions.

Jean Baptiste Bisseck’s side will face Randy Waldrum’s side in Abuja on Monday after a 0-0 draw in the first leg.

Bisseck is also confident of the ability of his Lionesses to turn the table against the nine-time African champions in Nigeria’s administrative capital.

“We will play on the Abuja field as if we are playing at home. Cameroon will not entertain any fear. The Lionesses are prepared to win and make progress.”

Waldrum is confident Super Falcons will overcome the challenge of Cameroon and reach the final round of the African qualifying series for this year’s Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in France.

“We played a good game in Douala and we are confident of our chances to get the ticket in Abuja. It was never going to be easy having only a few days together with the girls, but we will make the best of the opportunities that we are able to create on home ground on Monday,” said Waldrum.

The Super Falcons last participated at the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in China in 2008, when they lost by the odd goal to both the Democratic Republic of Korea and Germany in Shenyang, and 1-3 to Brazil in Beijing to crash out at group stage.

The route to London 2012 was blocked by Cameroon’s Indomitable Lionesses, who won a penalty shoot-out in Yaounde after both teams finished the two legs in a stalemate. Equatorial Guinea made the journey to Rio 2016 impossible and Cote d’Ivoire bumped the Falcons in the race to a place in Tokyo.

The third round of the Qualifiers will see the winner face either South Africa or Tanzania in the final and deciding fourth round.

South Africa won the first leg of their encounter with Tanzania 3-0 last Friday.
