WAFCON 2022: Zambia President, Hakainde Hichilema, Charges Coppers Against Super Falcons
The two semi-finals of the 2022 women’s African cup of nations have been concluded with Super Falcons of Nigeria bowing out to host Morocco in a keenly contested match that saw the Nigerian ladies reduced to nine players early in the 2nd half of the game at Mohammed V Stadium in Rabat, Morocco.
The Super Falcons fought very hard and forced the match to extra-time which was eventually decided by penalties.
In the other semi-final, South Africa controversially edged Zambia by one-zero to set up a final with host Morocco who are in the final of the WAFCON for the very first time in history.
Following their controversial loss to the Banyana-Banyana of South Africa, the Zambian president has charged the Copper Queens to go all out against the Super Falcons of Nigeria in the 3rd place final on Friday.
Addressing the team via telephone after their semi-final match on Monday, the president lauds the team’s professionalism as he faulted the officials for gifting South Africa the WAFCON final ticket.
