Morocco qualified for the final of the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations by defeating Nigeria, who had two players sent off, on penalties in Rabat on Monday.
With the score tied 1-1 after 120 minutes, the North African edged the reigning African champions 5-4 on penalties and will now face South Africa in the final on Friday.
In the keenly contested encounter played at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat, the Lionesses of Atlas began the game on a rampaging note – dominating ball possession as the Super Falcons were made to defend.
