Fair play and other favourable results were enough to see off Nigeria and Cameroon to the round of 16 of the women's world cup knock out stage.
Alas! The super falcons will face the German team on 22nd of june 2019; It will not be an easy ride for the super falcons because Germany are regular participants of the women's world cup and have qualified for every edition so far. However, it is never over until it is over at the end of the 90 minutes of playing time.
As it is, Super Falcons of Nigeria will enjoy the moment and embrace another opportunity to rewrite history because it is their first time to advance to the round of 16 in the FIFA women's world cup in 20 years while their opponent (Germany) have won the global showpiece twice in 2003 and 2007.
