The Super Falcons of Nigeria have sealed qualification for the 10th Africa Women’s Cup of Nations that will be taking place in Cameroon later this year after they beat their Senegalese counterparts 2-0 in Abuja on Tuesday.
Rita Chikwelu in the 36th minute and then Osarenoma Igbinovia in the 46th minute sealed victory and by extension qualification; for Nigeria in Tuesday’s game
The reigning African Queens sealed their place in Cameroon 2016 with a 3-1 aggregate score line having previously played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Dakar few days ago.
Asisat Oshoala blew away the golden chance to give Nigeria the lead in Tuesday’s game played at the Abuja National Stadium as she blew away a 31st minute penalty kick awarded to the Nigeria team but that counted for less at the end of the day
Tuesday’s win confirmed the Falcons superiority over their West African opponents who were largely hostile in the first leg played in Dakar
