Super Falcons of Nigeria have been drawn against South Africa, Burundi, and Botswana for the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON).

In the draw ceremony which was held in Rabat on Friday evening, the Super Falcons are placed in group C for the biennial football continental showpiece.

The Randy Waldrum ladies will once again face South African ladies in a repeat of the 2018 edition held in Ghana.

The Banyana Banyana pipped the Falcons 1-0 in their opening group game — but lost to the Nigerian side in the final via penalty shootouts.
