Nigeria and South Africa face off today in the semifinals of the 8th CAF African Women Football Championship, to be played at the Nkoantoma Stadium in Bata, Equatorial Guinea.

The last time both teams clashed at the AWC was in the final of the 2010 game hostedby South Africa. Nigeria won the encounter to claim their sixth title. Both teams met twice this year in international friendly matches,which ended 1-all in Rustenburg and goal-less in Lagos.

At this year’s tournament, the South Africans finished second on the Group A log, recording wins against Senegal (1-0) and the Democratic Republic of Congo(4-1) and went down (1-0) to the hosts, Equatorial Guinea inthe opening fixture.

Nigeria on the other hand beat Cameroun 2-1, Ethiopia 3-0 and Cote d'Ivoire 3-1 to claim top spot in Group B with 9 points.

THE WORDS
“The Banyana Banyana players are so keen to get the win over Nigeria and give South African football fans lots to be proud of as the win will allow our team to make the final, which is one step further than what we achieved at the CAF African Women Championship 2010 held in Ekurhuleni, near Johannesburg,” - Banyana Banyana head coach, Joseph Mkhonza

The Nigerians fielded their full strength team during the international friendly matches against SA and Banyana Banyana can break the mental block to record their first-everwin over the Super Falcons - Banyana Banyana midfielder, Portia Modise

"I'm confident going into the semis against the Banyana Banyana of South Africa. Everyone in the team is mentally prepared for the challenge and ready to give their best aimed at retaining the title. There is no cause for worry, we know ourselves very well, we'll always handle them though we envisage a tough battle. They're a good side no doubt about it but they won't stop us from hitting the final and winning back the title," said the Rivers Angels' finisher - Super Falcons Midfielder, Stella Mbachu

"The match against South Africa will be another tough game but I think we have a good chance against them - Super Falcons Coach, Kadiri Ikhana
