Nigeria women national team will face Senegal or Guinea in the second round of the qualifiers for the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations billed for Cameroon.

The Super Falcons drew bye alongside Ghana, Cote D’ivoire, South Africa and Equatorial Guinea in the first round and must get past either of the two west African sides to stand a chance of defending their trophy.

While first round matches hold in March 2016, second round first leg matches are fixed between April 8-10, 2016 with the second round holding between April 22 and April 24, 2015.

The seven teams to emerge from the qualifiers will join hosts Cameroon for the final tournament scheduled for Nov. 19 to Dec. 3, 2016.

Nigeria won a record seventh title after defeating Cameroon 2-0 in the final of the 2014 edition staged in Namibia with goals from Asisat Oshoala and Desire Oparanozie.
