Race towards securing the two spots reserved for Africa at the Paris 2024 Olympics resumes on Friday



The race towards securing the two spots reserved for Africa at the Paris 2024 Olympics resumes on Friday. Eight nations are vying for the two spots reserved for the continent, and CAFOnline looks at these encounters in the women’s football edition CAFonline reports.


Cameroon – Nigeria: African classic

It’s the great classic of African women’s football. Cameroon welcomes Nigeria to Douala.

The visiting Super Falcons carry the psychological advantage, with the last ten fixtures between the two sides only being won twice by Cameroon.


Nigeria has enjoyed good form since their FIFA Women’s World Cup™ round of 16 exit and will bring their experience into the clash.


Tunisia – Morocco: A North African derby full of promise


Quarter-finalist at the last edition of the CAF TotalEnergies Women’s African Cup of Nations, Tunisia faces the ever-improving Morocco, who were runner’s up at the TotalEnergies Women’s AFCON in an epic North African derby.


The two sides will aim to get positive results to step closer to securing a place in the Olympics and play for pride in the North African derby.


Zambia – Ghana: Copper Queens looking eyeing second consecutive Olympics appearance


An exciting tie awaits Ghana’s capital.


Following their appearance at the last edition of the Olympics, Zambia knows the feeling of being at the global showpiece and will want to see themselves again. But first, they must overcome the Black Queens, who their home fans will boost.


Meanwhile, the Copper Queens will have to give it their all despite the sad passing of their teammate, Norin Betani.


Tanzania – South Africa: No walk in the park


It will be an exciting tie between Tanzania, which is fast becoming a force in African women’s football, and the reigning African champions of South Africa. While on paper this may look a walk in the park for the reigning African champions who missed out on the last edition of the Olympics, they will have to be wary of the danger posed by the rising Tanzanian nation who will be at home.
