The Nigeria women’s team will face arch-rivals Black Queens in Thursday’s semifinal after defeating Mali in Abidjan. The Super Falcons won 2-0 in Tuesday’s final Group B encounter at the ongoing WAFU Women’s Cup in Cote d’Ivoire. Rivers Angels striker Rafiat Sule and Southeastern University star Uchenna Kanu were the heroines for the Super Falcons at the Stade Robert Champroux.
The result means Thomas Dennerby’s ladies will rekindle their rivals with neighbours Ghana when they slug it out in the semi-final for the second successive time.
The first half failed to produce a goal, although Mohamed Saloum’s side were reduced to 10 players after Fatoumata Diarra was sent off on the brink of half time.
