The Falcons have three points after losing to the Banyana Banyana of South Africa and defeating the Mares of Botswana.

Burundi however have been defeated by both South Africa and Botswana and will not be keen to add Nigeria to their list of defeats.

However, going by the previous Group results and by reputation, the Nigerian girls are favourites in this tie.

Randy Waldrum will be itching to unleash Ifeoma Onumonu, Francisca Ordega, Christy Ucheibe and co. on the Swallows of Burundi.

The Super Falcons will want to prove their mettle as nine time WAFCON champions,after losing the first game to South Africa and cement themselves as favourites once again.

Four time African Footballer of the year, Asisat Oshoala however will not take part in the remainder of the tournament after sustaining an injury.

Burundi have scored in every game they have played in this tournament and are more than capable of putting one past the goal line if taken lightly.

The game takes place Sunday July 10 at 21:00 pm Nigerian time.
