Paris 2024 Qualifiers: Super Falcons and Indomitable Lionesses share spoils in Douala

Nigeria’s senior women’s national team and Cameroon settled for a 0-0 draw in their 2024 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament third round, first leg encounter in Douala on Friday.

The nine-time champions of Africa took the pitch with their usual dash and gloss and forced consecutive throw-ins.

The game would become a ding-dong as time wore on, and in the 27th minute, midfielder Toni Payne wasted a good opportunity to put Nigeria ahead.

Twelve minutes later, the Indomitable Lionesses caught sight of goal, but goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie, one of the world’s safest pair of hands at the moment, had things covered.

In the second half, the Lionesses stepped up their game as they were urged on by the home crowd at the Stade de la Reunification Douala.

It was Nigeria that had the ball in the net five minutes into the second half, only for Ugandan referee Shamirah Nabbada to rule Jennifer Echegini off-side.

The winner on aggregate of the Nigeria/Cameroon fixture will most likely have to duel with the African champions, South Africa which beat Tanzania 3-0 for a place in Paris.

Both the Super Falcons and the Indomitable Lionesses clash in the second leg at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Monday evening.

This will be the first time that the Super Falcons will play out a 0-0 since the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup where the team played goalless draw three times with Canada, Republic of Ireland, and England.

Elsewhere, Morocco edge Tunisia 2-1 away from home while Rachael Kundananji scored the winner as Zambia pipped Ghana 1-0.
