The Confederation of African Football appointed Zalikatou Traore Diallo from Guinea as the match commissioner, with Veronique Ike Ngomba from Congo as referee. Another Congolese, Julie Kyabuta Kanyembo will be the first assistant while Sacle Marthe Sakobo is the second assistant referee.
CAF has replaced Gabonese official Patricia Obiang Obone, who was slated to be the reserve referee, but could not make it. CAF has replaced her with Nigerian official Foluso Ajayi.
NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi personally welcomed the officials to the match coordination meeting at the NFF Secretariat in Abuja on Monday afternoon, assisted by the Acting Director of Competitions, Mr. Bola Oyeyode and the Assistant Director (Communications), Mr. Ademola Olajire.
Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in Dakar on Friday, with the Super Falcons set to confirm their indomitability on the African continent today.
The Super Falcons boast a fearsome strike –force of Asisat Oshoala, Desire Oparanozie, Francisca Ordega and Chioma Wogu, with nimble–footed midfielder Ngozi Okobi also always a threat.
