In a thrilling encounter, the Super Falcons of Nigeria secured a crucial 1-0 victory over South Africa in the first leg of the final round of Olympic qualifiers, bringing them closer to earning a spot at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Rasheedat Ajibade showcased her prowess by converting a penalty in the 43rd minute, clinching the win for Nigeria at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

The Nigerian team displayed a strong start, exerting pressure on South Africa from the onset. Despite their early dominance, it was the penalty incident involving Chinwendu Ihezuo that ultimately led to the decisive goal, expertly executed by Rasheedat.
