The Nigerian ladies kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 win over Mali, before thrashing Senegal 3-0 and defeating Togo 3-1 in the group stages.
They comfortably won their group with 9 points, and will now face Ghana, which started with a 1-0 defeat to Cote d’Ivoire but finished second in the Group B with a 4-1 win over Burkina Faso.
