Nigeria's Super Falcons will on Tuesday take on their counterpart from Algeria in the second leg of qualifiers for the 2020 Olympics Women Football Tournament.
The nine –time African champions thumped their hosts 2-0 in the first leg in Blida on Wednesday and look to quickly shut the door against the North Africans at the Agege Stadium, Lagos on Tuesday in order to start focusing on the second round of the qualifying series against either Cote d’Ivoire or Mali.
Mali, who host Tuesday’s return leg in Bamako, lost 0-3 to the Ivorians in Abidjan last week and have a mountain to surmount against the visitors, whose game has been steadily improving over the years.
Nigeria Head Coach Thomas Dennerby has even a stronger pack to choose from, with six foreign–based professionals having joined the squad for the return leg, led by FC Barcelona’s Asisat Oshoala.
There are also defenders Ngozi Ebere and Osinachi Ohale, midfielder Ngozi Okobi and forwards Rasheedat Ajibade and Francisca Ordega.
