The Super Falcons of Nigeria have qualified for the quarterfinals of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations after beating Burundi 4-0 in their final Group C game of the tournament.

Nigeria only needed a draw against Burundi to seal a spot in the quarterfinal of the WAFCON.

But Uchenna Kanu’s brace as well as goals from Rasheedat Ajibade and Peace Efih helped the Super Falcons to tear the Swallows apart as they got more than a draw at the Moulay Hassan Stadium in Morocco.


With this result, the Super Falcons finished as runners-up and they will now face Group B runners-up Cameroon on July 14 for a chance to earn a place in the semi-final as well as a place in the 2023 FIFA World Cup billed for Australia and New Zealand.

Elsewhere, South Africa ended a successful 2022 WAFCON Group C campaign with a 1-0 win over Botswana at Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Morocco.

A late goal by Nthabiseng Majiya gave the Banyana Banyana a narrow victory over the Mares in their final group stage match.

However, their key players Jermaine Seoposenwe and Thembi Kgatlana were injured in the match.

The win saw South Africa finish their group stage campaign with a 100 per cent record as Group C winners and they will now face Tunisia in a quarter-final clash on Thursday.


On the other hand, Botswana also progressed to the last eight as one of the best third-placed teams and they will now square off with tournament hosts Morocco on Wednesday.
