The Super Falcon has made a remarkable history in 20 years as they qualify for the knockout stages of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Africa News24 (AN24) reports that this is the first time two teams from Africa (Cameroon and Nigeria) have qualified from the  group stages.

AN24 reports that the Super Falcon will confront former champions Germany in the last 16 of the 2019 Women’s World Cup in Grenoble on Saturday.

The Falcons emerged as one of the best losers to the round of 16 after finishing third in Group A behind France and Norway but had to endure a torrid time before confirming their place in the last 16 of the event.

The female Eagles had ended their Group A campaign with three points, courtesy of a 2-0 win over the Korea Republic and losses to former champions Norway (3-0) and hosts France (1-0).
