The former Nigerian goalkeeper believes the nine-time African champions will beat the host side when they lock horns on Monday, July 18, 2022.
Ex-Nigerian international goalkeeper Joseph Dosu has tipped the Super Falcons to beat hosts Morocco in the semifinal of the ongoing 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations. A 58th-minute header from RasheedatAjibade saw Nigeria beat Cameroun 1-0 in the quarterfinals on Thursday, July 14, at the StadeMohamed V, Casablanca to book a World Cup ticket and advance into the semifinal. The Atlanta 1996 Olympics gold medalist believes the Randy Waldrum-led side has all it takes to beat the North Africans.

“It will be difficult for Morocco to shock the Super Falcons despite playing in front of their home crowed.No doubt, they are a good side but the Super Falcons are a better team and will show their class against their host. Their home supporters will be silenced regardless of the noise they make. I am confident the Super Falcons will defeat Morocco in the semi-final.”
Nigeria is on course for a record-extending 10th WAFCON title and will be squaring off against Morocco at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium on Monday, July 18.
The Super Falcons were subject to criticism after losing their opening match 2-1 to the BanyanaBanyana of South Africa. They would overcome their shaky start to beat Botswana 2-0 in their second game and wallop Burundi 4-0 in their last group game to book a quarter-final ticket.
