Super Falcons, hosts Morocco clash for final place

The PUNCH says that when Morocco hosts Nigeria on Monday (today) at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat, their Cinderella narrative in the 2017 Women's Africa Cup of Nations will be put to the test.

The Lionesses of Atlas have been impressive thus far in the competition, proving skeptics wrong by triumphing in each of their first four games. South Africa is the other nation to have accomplished such a feat during this campaign.

With a spot at the Women's World Cup in Australia/New Zealand next year already secured, both teams are now focused on winning the WAFCON championship, but first they must neutralize one another.

The Super Falcons recovered from a rocky start in which they lost their opening match 2-1 to South Africa to win their remaining three matches and resurrect their title defense.

The Super Falcons are vying for the championship for a record-breaking tenth time, while the Lionesses are attempting to win the trophy for the first time in their history.
