Super Falcon, Banyana Banyana set for last group games at the world cup

Nigeria’s Super Falcon and South Africa’s Banyana Banyana will be playing their final group games tonight at the women’s world cup taking place in France.

Super falcon will play host nation France in Rennes while Banyana Bayana will lock horns with Germany in Montpellier in a do or die battle

Anything short of victory for the South Africans over the two-time world champions will see them eliminated from the tournament. 

Having lost their two opening matches to Spain and China, the World Cup debutantes hangs on a slim chance of making it to the round of 16, if they can do the impossible tonight.

They can still qualify for the next round with a win against Germany as one of the four best third-placed teams. 

That will however depend on what happens in the other match in their group between Spain and China, plus permutations in other groups.

A victory for South Africa will go down as a shock in this tournament, even though Germany has already qualified for the next round. 

Meanwhile, the Super Falcons of Nigeria who are also looking for a last-16 qualification need at least a draw to be sure of a place in the last 16.

There’s been a lot of focus on this match from French newspapers and TV stations.

France has already qualified for the next round, but will want to seal a top spot finish in their group to avoid facing one of the stronger sides in the last 16.
