Super Falcons qualify for Olympics for the first time in 16 years

Nigeria has qualified for the Summer Olympics after beating South Africa 1-0 on aggregate.


Rasheedat Ajibade scored from the spot in the first leg of the qualifiers in Abuja last Friday, so today’s goalless draw in South Africa means the first and only goal was enough for the Super Falcons to pick one of Africa’s tickets for the women’s football event of the Paris Olympics.

The last time Nigeria’s Super Falcons reached the Olympics was 16 years ago.
