Nigeria Is The First African Country To Qualify For The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

Yesterday, the Super Falcons of Nigeria impressed fans by beating Cameroon 4-2 at the AWCON semifinals. In addition to securing a place in the finals of the tournament, the team became the first African country to qualify for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France!

It will be Nigeria’s eighth consecutive appearance at the Women’s World Cup, having played in all seven previous editions, going all the way back to the inaugural tournament in 1991. Hopefully, the team will beat their 1999 record and actually make it beyond the quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, South Africa secured their first-ever ticket to the global tournament, after beating Mali. They will now face Super Falcons in the 2019 AWCON final on Saturday – and we’re looking forward to Nigeria paying them back for the 1-0 loss in their opening match.
