Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, and Zambia emerged as the last standing contenders, showcasing their prowess and determination to secure their places in Paris later this year. Notably, these four teams are also the representatives of Africa at the last FIFA Women’s World Cup, underlining their pedigree in women’s football on the continent.

The Super Falcons of Nigeria clinched their spot in the final round by overcoming Cameroon with a 1-0 victory over two legs. Meanwhile, South Africa, the reigning African champions, demonstrated their dominance with a resounding 4-0 aggregate win against Tanzania.

In a thrilling encounter on Wednesday evening, Zambia faced off against Ghana. After a tense battle, the Copper Queens managed to secure a 3-3 draw, thanks to a late strike by the ever-reliable Barbra Banda, advancing 4-3 on aggregate.

In another showdown, Morocco outclassed Tunisia with a convincing 4-1 victory, building on their initial 2-1 win in Tunis. This triumph positions Morocco, who recently made their FIFA World Cup debut, in a promising position to secure another qualification for a global competition.

The final round of qualifiers promises to be intense, with South Africa set to clash with Nigeria, while Zambia will take on Morocco in two-legged fixtures scheduled between April 1st and April 9th, 2024.
