Both sides have been drawn to play against each other in a two-legged encounter that will see one side come out top and grab a slot in the continental event slated to hold in Morocco, 2022. Super Falcons captain Asisat Oshoala who plies her trade with FC Barcelona Femini is expected to lead the team alongside other key players such as Onome Ebi, Desire Oparanozie, Osinachi Ohale, Chiamaka Nnadozie, Francisca Ordega, and others.
