Rasheedat Ajibade has shared her feelings after Nigeria earned a ticket to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The Super Falcons achieved that feat following a 1-0 win over Cameroon in the quarter-final of the ongoing Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.

After a goalless first half at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca, the Atletico Madrid forward powered the West Africans to victory in the 53rd minute – heading Ifeoma Onumonu’s cross past goalkeeper Ange Bawou.

Ajibade, who is the joint-highest scorer in 2022 WAFCON with three goals, was named player-of-the-match for her awe-inspiring display against Gabriel Zabo’s Indomitable Lionesses.

She went on social media to relish the triumph that will see Nigeria represent Africa in the competition to be co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia.

The 22-year-old wrote on Twitter:

Every time I call, he answers me. My help comes from the Lord. Naija, we are going to the World Cup.

The reigning African champions continue their quest for a 10th African diadem with a semi-final clash against hosts Morocco on Monday at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium, Rabat.
