Super Falcons Captain, Onome Ebi

Nigeria Super Falcons take on South Africa in a Group C matchup that is sure to be an exciting game in the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON), a rematch of the 2018 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations final.

This serves as the preliminary final for many people. It truly is a battle of the titans. In September of last year, in Lagos, the Aisha Buhari Invitational final featured the two most competitive teams. Banyana Banyana defeated the Super Falcons 4-2 to win the first trophy.

The outcome left the continental giants with a bad taste in their mouths, and now they are out for vengeance.

We are here in the first game. It is not going to be easy. It is just like playing a final in the beginning.

I like the fact that we are playing them in the first game. I think playing against them will motivate us.”

The Super Falcons are a well-oiled squad with expertise, youthful excitement, and most importantly, a never-give-up attitude that has demonstrated why they are the best for decades.
