Zambia’s Copper Queens defeated Nigeria’s Eagles 1-0 to clinch the third overall position at the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) Finals on Friday (July 22) night.
The third-place play-off game set tone for Saturday (July 23)’s final between tournament hosts Morocco and South Africa.
To reach the final, South Africa edged Zambia 1-0 while Morocco eliminated Nigeria 4-2 on post-match penalties after a 1-1 draw in the semifinals played last weekend.
By-and-large, Zambia, who were thrashed 5-0 by Uganda Crested Cranes in a practice match before the tournament kicked off earlier this month, have had a successful finish after qualifying for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Finals due next year in Australia and New Zealand.
