22 October 2014, 14:27Israel Ojoko

Windhoek - Super Falcons coach Edwin Okon has brought back the duo of Asisat Oshoala and Desire Oparanozie to his starting lineup for the African Women’s Championship semifinal match against South Africa.

Okon left out Oshoala and Oparanozie in the last group game against host Namibia after the duo have led the team to a semifinal place after just two games.

However, goalkeeper Ibubeleye Whyte retains her gloves ahead of Precious Dede, while Perpetua Nkwocha returns to the bench after starting in the last game.

The game will kick off 4pm Nigerian time.
