The Super Falcons who have dominated women football in Africa are chasing an eighth title, but the Bayana Bayana have warned that they will not be intimated.
South Africa have yet to win the title and have been defeated 14 times by Nigeria in 21 meetings emerging victorious only thrice.
They are however hitting fine form, and defeated Egypt 5-0 to reach the semi-final.
