The Super Falcons of Nigeria have been drawn to face Ghana in the first round of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (AWCON) qualifiers.

The draw for the Total AWCON took place at the CAF headquarters in Cairo, Egypt on Monday.

Falcons, known to be the most successful team with nine titles in eleven editions, will once again compete for the first round of the coveted women’s AFCON title.

If successful in their encounter against the Black Queens of Ghana, the Randy Waldrum girls will face the winner between Niger and Ivory Coast to qualify for the tournament proper.

Aggregate winners will qualify to join Morocco, the host nation, in the final tournament.

The tournament will then kick off from July 2 to 23 next year.
