Host Morocco stunned nine-woman Nigeria 5-4 on penalties as they reached the final of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in their history at the Complexe Sportif Prince Moulay-Abdellah on Monday.
As a result, they will battle South Africa’s Banyana Banyana for this year’s title at the Stade Prince Moulay Abdallah Saturday.
The Atlas Lionesses reached the final by defeating the Super Falcons in a post-match penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw after extra time in the enthralling semi-final match in Rabat.
Goalkeeper Khadujah Er-Rmichi emerged as the heroine for the home side after saving Nigeria striker Ifeoma Onumonu’s kick during the shoot-out.
The South Africans, on the other hand, defeated Zambia 1-0 in Casablanca on Monday.
A stoppage-time penalty converted by Linda Motlhalo helped Banyana Banyana to reach the final of Africa’s flagship women’s football tournament.
The Banyana Banyana fought hard to beat the Copper Queens to secure a second consecutive final and fifth overall in the history of the competition.
Morocco will face South Africa in Saturday’s final with both teams looking to clinch the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations title for the first time.
