Paris 2024: Super Falcons to land in Douala on Wednesday ahead of Indomitable Lionesses clash

Nine-time African champions, Nigeria’s senior women’s national team will fly to Cameroon’s industrial and economic capital, Douala on Wednesday night as they continue the search for a ticket to another appearance at the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament after 16 years.

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 coach of the team, Randy Waldrum who is returning to the team after the extension of his contract by a year following a Round of finish at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup is wary of Cameroon’s threats.

He is relying on the team’s World Cup experience to beat the Indomitable Lionesses.

“If we can put together performances like we did at the World Cup then we have the chance,” Waldrum told NFFTV.

“We need to carry on from what happened at the World Cup and build on it or even do better.

“We will have to rely much on our experience at the World Cup to take us through especially this first match before the second match.”

After eliminating Ethiopia in the second round of the series, the Super Falcons must now cross the Cameroonian hurdle to reach the final round of the African qualification series and throw down the gauntlet to whichever opposition appears at that stage in two months.

The first leg encounter will take place at the Stade de la Reunification in Douala on Friday evening.
