Nigeria and Cameroon will be meeting for the 15th time when both sides clash on Thursday night in the quarter-finals at the Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca.

The Super Falcons of Nigeria have the upper hand coming into this fixture winning 10 of the previous 14 encounters and losing just one.

After securing a victory and two draws in a zone that had Zambia, Tunisia, and Togo the Indomitable Lionesses will be seeking revenge on the Super Falcons who have deprived them 5 titles.

However, they must negotiate their way past the reigning African champions if they are to qualify for the competition’s semi-finals – which will also guarantee them an automatic ticket to the 2023 Fifa Women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

The Super Falcons finished second behind South Africa in Group C with six points, losing to South Africa and later defeating Botswana and Burundi.

Cameroon also qualified as runners-up in group B with five points behind Zambia who won the group with seven points.
