The Confederation of African Football has selected Nigerien official Zouwaira Souley as the centre referee for Wednesday’s match between Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria in Abidjan.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the match is the second leg tie of their 2022 Women Africa Cup of Nations final qualifying round fixture.

Souley will work with compatriot Hawa Moussa (assistant referee 1), Lamouni Latiifah Pare from Burkina Faso (assistant referee 2) and another Nigerien, Nafissa Sani (fourth official).

Ademola Olajire, Director of Communications at the Nigeria Football Federation, said in a statement on Monday that Ayawa Mawoufemo Dzodope from Togo will serve as the game’s match commissioner.

Another Togolese, Latré-Kayi Lawson-Hogban, is the match’s referee assessor.

NAN reports that the Nigerian team, the Super Falcons, are nine-time winners of AWCON and won the first leg match at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja 2-0 on Friday.

Both goals were scored by U.S-based forward Ifeoma Onumonu.
