It was indeed a game of two super teams with so much tense on both sides.
The semi final fixture between these teams saw two red cards against Nigeria’s top players; Kanu and Ajibade.
However, the 9 Super Falcons refused to be eaten by the Lionesses of Morocco as the game went into extra time and penalty shootout subsequently after 1-1 after normal time.
Nigeria lost the game to the 2022 edition host on 5 – 4 penalty scoreline as Morocco now proceed to meet South Africa in the final.
