Nigeria vs Cameroon
Nigeria finished second in group B after two wins a loss, while Cameroon were top of group A with two wins and a draw.
Super Falcons head coach Thomas Dennerby made no changes to the starting line up for their previous two games that ended on victory.
The Super Falcons were however bullied to creating very few chances in the first half as the Indomitable Lionesses controlled possession and set the tone of the game.
The Cameroonians aimed to revenge previous defeats to Nigeria as the game at the Accra Sports Stadium ended in a goalless draw at halftime, with neither team creating any clear cut chances.
