Thursday’s encounter at the Stade Mohammed V will be the 15th match between Nigeria and Cameroon at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.
The Super Falcons boast a staggering 14 wins with the Indomitable Lionesses having the upper hand over the West Africans once.
Having this in mind, Gabriel Zabo’s women would go all out to end the dominance of the reigning African champions in Casablanca.
In her preview, former captain Christine Manie believes her side can silence the Nigerians having achieved that in the third-place match at Wafcon 2012.
“It’s more than a rivalry, it’s a challenge for me. I played against the Super Falcons and lost two finals,” the former CFF Olimpia Cluj defender told
“It’s a challenge that all the players want to play, whether it’s on the side of Nigeria or Cameroon. This is one of the big games of these quarter-finals.
“We have already beaten Nigeria (at Wafcon 2012), we can do it again.”
Coach Randy Waldrum will be counting on in-form Rasheedat Ajibade to wreak havoc against the Central Africans
The Atletico Madrid forward has been directly involved in four of Nigeria’s seven goals in Morocco, scoring two and registering two assists.
Indeed, no player has been involved in more Wafcon 2022 goals for the West Africans than the former FC Robo star.
Four-time runners-up Cameroon are lifted by the fact that they are unbeaten in their four matches in the competition, whereas Nigeria suffered one defeat from the same number of outings – the loss coming against South Africa in their opening Wafcon 2022 fixture.
