It appears Nigeria’s senior women’s national team will face Ethiopia at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja, in the return leg of the Paris 2024 Olympic Qualifiers.
In a letter allegedly leaked to a Nigerian media outlet, the Nigeria Football Federation confirmed Abuja as its home venue in its invitation to Super Falcons players for the return leg of the Qualifiers will be held on Tuesday, 31st October.
Ethiopia will host the first leg of the second-round fixture in Addis Ababa on Wednesday, October 25.
The game against Ethiopia will be the Super Falcons’ first encounter since their Round of 16 finish at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia.
The Super Falcons played at the Olympics in 2000, 2004, and 2008. Unfortunately, the nine-time African champions have missed the last three editions of the women’s event of the Olympics in 2012, 2016, and 2020.
Paris, France will host next year’s Women’s Olympic Football Tournament.
